according to your link, the specs say it has pc2 4200 installed. if you want to use faster memory you will need to know if your motherboard suppots it.
download your motherboard manual as this is a mine of information and always comes in handy.
if you want to install more pc2 4200 and there are 4 slots get another 2x512. if there are only 2 get 2x1g and sell the moduals you take out.

Thanks citadel but as i have no idea of what you mean by pc2 4200 could you please take a look at the specs of the motherboard and tell me if it will support it.

Go to Crucial click here and let them scan your system. It will tell you what upgrade choices are available.

If you haven't come across Crucial before they are one of the most respected sites on the Web.

Thanks bremner checked ot the site it was very helpful, do you think crucial memory is better than all of above links i posted

I do not know whether one make of memory is better than another.

I have used Crucial for many years and have always had excellent service. However Novatech is also well recommend on this site.

Corsair and OCZ RAM is at least as "good" at Crucial RAM - they are all Grade 1 RAM manufacturers.

The three links you give are for faster RAM than your motherboard says it supports (up to 533MHz - which is PC2-4200 RAM.)

The Crucial RAM in the previous link is the correct speed - faster is pointless if your motherboard doesn't support it.

Novatech don't appear to supply branded Grade1 RAM at the speed you require - so my personal inclination would be to go for the Crucial offering.

Kingston RAM was always the RAM I used when building systems.
