Yup, Newegg.com - Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail definitely works with my computer..

I have 667MHz ram in right now, and it can run at 667, and it's DDR2.

Will probably buy this, one package, 2 gigs of ram, only 54 bucks.. good deal if you ask me.

Newegg.com - Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

$50 after mail in rebate.

You would almost be stupid to buy Kingston value RAM over this.

holy crap dude ty so much, this program will help me SO much.. wow thank you.

Turns out I have a PC2 5300 slot.

So I'm going to narrow it down to..
Newegg.com - Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - CORSAIR ValueSelect 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Desktop Memory - Retail

I know both are very well-known, but I don't know which is better? Can you guys help me figure out which to pick?

Since you won't be overclocking then just take your pick. Both will work and come with lifetime warranties.

I think it means that is the max of your current RAM.

I would still get something besides value RAM, even if you won't be overclocking. It's just simply faster RAM, it will last longer, and you'll probably be happier you did later on down the road.

It's all very cheap, try to get something half-decent. Kingston value RAM is complete garbage from my experience.
