The safest way is to go to your motherboard home site and see if the have a 'QVL'(Qualified Vendor List') to see what brands and types they recommend.
If you are adding memory to a currently-used sticks, it is best to match new modules(memory sticks) to the modules you have running now.
If you want to upgrade to better modules and/or a dual-channel kit, post your motherboard brand name and model number and what kind of needs and budget you have and I am sure you will get several recommendations.

Newegg is a pretty decent place to shop online for good prices and selection.

You can use a program like to CPUID to determine the manufacturer of your motherboard... But, since you will be the one installing the RAM to your computer, it is better to open your case to view your mobo model.. :sayyes:
