Which memory chip to add?

I would like to purchase some more memory to my win2k desctop machine.
I'm using this PC for two things:
  A. Running Oracle database benchmarks.
  B. Runnig Simulation and FPS games.

1. Which memory chip (regardless of price) would be the best?
2. How can I found out if my hardware supports that kind of memory and I'm not
   just throwing my money away? (can it be done via software or should I open
   the cover and use a flashlight)?

Thanks

type of memory is determined by
1. memory supported by motherboard
2. memory currently installed in motherboard

Crucial have an excellent website that can be used to determine what memory is needed.

You can search their database for your PC model (branded computers) or motherboard model (clone/custom PC)

www.crucial.com

Memory Selector
www.crucial.com/store/listmfgr.asp?cat=RAM

Prices are also good.
