Getting the right memory

Wonder if any of you know the answer. Trying to upgrade the following with an extra 1gb of memory. Just want to check to make sure I get the right one.

HP D330
2.80 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4
8 kilobyte primary memory cache
512 kilobyte secondary memory cache
Board: Hewlett-Packard 085Ch
Bus Clock: 533 megahertz
BIOS: Hewlett-Packard 786B2 v2.18 01/15/2004

Its got some 2x 128 DDR 333 CL2.5 16MX64SDRAM PC2700 in there at the moment.

Seen this

Corsair 1GB DDR Value Select PC2700 Kit (2x512MB) (MY-045-CS)

- Form Factor DIMM 184-pin
- Memory Speed 333 MHz ( PC2700 )

Or would this been better?

Or if you suggest anything that would do the job at a reasonable price (I'm taking the existing memory out to use in another machine)

Thanks for that Earthworm. Already had a look there. The Corsair was a bit cheaper (good rep as well) Can't believe how much memory has gone up recently!

Most memory is of good quality, however like all things, you get what you pay for !.
