    In order to know what kind of ram you need, first we need to know what your motherboard's make/model is.

    Download and run this program:

    And tell us what it says for your motherboard.

    Actually, is your computer a brand name like a dell or emachine etc.? If so, just give is the model number of the computer. Otherwise, use the program above to get your mobo info.

    Hmm....if I were, I'd just get a new mo bo with an nforce chipset, PCI-E slots, and DDR memory. Then you can get Kingston, Consair, etc. A lot of things us DDR now a days, but I really don't know about and good SDRAM ones. =P
