I currently have a gig of Corsair memory, i was trying to go through my pc to find out specifically which type, but i was unable to, all i could find is the amount. But im looking to move up to 2 gigs, so im guessing i should just match the stick thats already in there? Looking for suggestions, and any ides on how ot check the model of my Corsair memory, thanks!

Alright, so i've decided to just sell the ram i have and get 2 gigs of new ram. Though i had a question, im not familiar with the workings of RAM, so what does it mean by PC3200 and theres all sorts of different ones? Does it matter which one i get?

yes it matters! you should look on the websites of Crucial, Corsair & OCZ they have memory selectors also called memory configurators

input your motherboard maker and model in there and it will give you a "guaranteed" list of ram stick models that will work in your computer

then you write down the model numbers and search ebay (you can save money that way)

you looking for a dual channel 2 x one gig kit PC3200 with Cas 2.5 or Cas 3 (CAS 2.5 is faster)
I dont reccomend you buy the ones with CAS 2 as they are the more expensive high performance sticks for overclockers
