Default Is this ram compatible with my pc?

Hi,
I'm looking to add ram to my pc (Hp pavillon t546.fr) if I'm not mistaken the motherboard is an Oxford with the Intel 848P chipset. I want to buy this ram: 1 G DDR400,
184 PIN Memory
3.2 GB/sec
400Mhz
2.5 / 2.6 Volt Module
DIMM (DUAL IN-LINE MEMORY 128 X 64) HIGH DENSITY
Non-ECC, Non-Parity
Unbuffered


Will it be compatible? I looked around but cant figure it out

Thanks

Yes it will be, unless you are limited to 512 chip sizes

Well, 2GB is your max... so if you have four RAM slots, I'd get 512 MB chips. If you only have two RAM slots, then the 1 GB should be fine.
