Default Trying to find RAM for my PC

Hi,

I'm trying to identify proper RAM modules for my PC. As I don't know
much in this area, I'm looking for some help.

My PC is an HP Pavilion a6140.be:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...roduct=3465139

It already has 2 modules (240 pin, DDR2 SDRAM) of 1GB with 2 banks
available.

My closest reseller sells Dane-Elec modules:
http://www.dane-elec.fr/index.php?op...mid=30&lang=en

From the 2 models describes on the site, which one should I pick?
DDR2-533 (PC2-4200) DIMM Unbuffered
DDR2-400/533 (PC2-3200/4200) DIMM Registered


Thanks!

Raph

There are two sites on the Internet that can tell you exactly what type
of RAM is compatible with your PC:

(1) www.kingston.com
(2) www.crucial.com

They will usually list all models of PC's available.

Registered or Buffered RAM is usually for servers. Desktops and laptops
use unbuffered.
