Default Memory upgrade

Is this RAM compatible with my pc of HP CQ5600Y ? Plz let me know.*|*Corsair


According to this link it supports up to 4 gb for a 32bit system but what about 64bit which I have. Any ideas?

Yeah, it should work fine.

They are just saying that you can only get up to 4GB (~3.5GB, actually) with 32-bit. With 64-bit, you can use 4GB or more. But your system can only use a max of 4GB.

You should be fine, in the least.
