The type of RAM depends upon the type of motherboard. While it is common to use the various types sorgie mentions above, the MB is what will drive your buying decision.  IE: you can't have DDR in a MB that doesn't have a DDR slot.

Any idea of the MB in this system?  If not, maybe you can post your bios string so we can research for you?

Use the Crucial link that sorgie gave. Enter your system in the configurator (either by system make and model or motherboard make and model), and the correct type and size of ram will be shown.

I have been using Crucial exclusively for several years. Thier quality and support are the best around. Well worth the few dollars more than the generic chips you'll find for a lower price.
