T make sure you get the correct RAM we need to know make and model of motherboard.

The motherboard serial number will help if you do not know make and model.

Unless you're intending pushing the boundaries of RAM usage in your PC or are after bragging rights, then it doesn't really make any difference.

Given the choice, go for cheapest RAM that your motherboard can handle - watch the frequency though. Check your motherboard specs to see what freq. It can handle. There's not a great deal of performance difference between, say, 667MHz and 1066MHz, but it's worth staying at or above 800MHz if your PC can take it.

Not quite sure how he's going to get a scan if the PC has no RAM?

Then this is what you need then click here+(K9VGM-V) - also scroll lower down.

You should be able to get cheaper RAM elsewhere though. The Nanya or Hynix RAM should be fine if it meets the spec required - how much are you getting those for? G
