I believe you *might* need DDR RAM, but can't tell without knowing the type of Motherboard you have. Can you tell me the model number of your Motherboard?


This article will help you:

Firstly, do you mean Windows 7?? (not 2007)

Secondly, the OS makes no difference to what hardware you install in your PC.

Please post the specs of your computer (CPU type, motherboard model if possible).

The ram must work with your motherboard, nothing else really matters.

If the computer is under 3 years old, chances are its DDR2. If its really new, DDR3.

If its more than 3 years old, it may be simply DDR - but you will need to post your specs before we can help you.

If you right click on 'My Computer' on the desktop, and chose 'properties'. The general tab which is then open should at lest tell what model & speed of CPU you have installed, as well as how much ram and what speed.

If you know the make & model of your PC, this should help (if its a pre-built PC):

Just adding a couple pennies of thought here, and a bit of a warning.

Another reason the specifications of your computer are critically important is that what memory you get doesn't depend on just whether it's compatible or not.

The speed rating of the memory is important too.

You can buy compatible memory, but it may be rated WAY below the maximum speed at which your computer can run and its performance will be far, far below what it could be. People comparison shopping by price and capacity (e.g. 1gb v 2gb v 4gb) only, may not realize this.

Slower memory can be cheaper, but it's generally desirable to suck up the higher cost and purchase the fastest memory your system will run. There are some other considerations that can make this flexible and that's why I used the word "generally", but the purpose of my post is to just warn that memory rated speed is another parameter to keep in mind.
