Default Getting more RAM

It's time for me to upgrade from 512MB to 1GB, but I don't know what to buy.

I have a K7S5A Pro mobo that (according to Belarc Advisor) has a bus clock of 66MHz. The manual thingy says it supports 184-pin DIMM slots for DDR SDRAM modules up to 266MHz.

But it's not like I know what any of that stuff means.

It's cheap because your motherboard is old and only supports that slow RAM.

I doesn't matter what kind of ram you buy, just make sure that it's the same speed. If you get faster ram it will just downclock to 266mhz. If your not overclocking it doesn't matter what kind or quality of ram you get.
