    Regards,
    Vardhan

    Two new 1GB sticks. They should be the same exact rating as what you have already. Same timings. Same frequency. Exact same model if at all possible.

    If possible purchase 2x1gb.

    I don't believe buying 2 x 512mb would be a good use of your free Ram slots and money.

    Download and run CPU-Z. Look at the Memory tab and SPD tab.

    The SPD tab will tell you how your current RAM should be set and its part number that you can Google to find specs like timings and frequency.

    The Memory tab shows you how you actual do have the memory set.

    I personally would not buy from those links you gave because there is no brand name associated with it and there are not even any specs shown at all.

    You really need to match up with what you have already, or get ready for lots of bsods all day every day in all likelihood. (Ram companies do not even support very similar RAM models of their own company, used together.)

    Make total abuse of your BDay and ask for four identical 1GB RAM sticks,compatible to your MB that is,every other combination would get you eventually nothing more than trouble.Thats gonna be some happy birthday!
