    Your best bet would be to use on the the memory selector tools, if im stuck i always use the one on Crucial.com

    Start off with your PC Make and go from there, it normally lists ALL models, but if your unlucky and it doesnt, take the side of the case off and look on the motherboard for its model number, usually a couple of letters and some numbers, stick that in google and see what comes up!

    I wouldn't get too excited about Crucial, as long as the memory is a big brand name like Corsair, OCZ, Kingston etc it should be fine.

    Most big brands have a lifetime warranty on even their value ram now so thats something to look out for.

    Crucial has support 24/7 very good prices delivery very fast. I can not find any situation to blame them. It is far the best internet system and the memory if you know how to choose there is no mistake, you can also use the memory selector to see if your system is compatible with the selected memory.
