We need more info.

Are you running a prebuilt computer? (HP, Dell, etc.) If so, what is the model number of your machine?
If you built it yourself, what is the brand/model number of your motherboard?

According to Crucial's memory finder:
Computer memory upgrades for Giga-Byte GA-H55M-S2H Motherboard from Crucial.com

Quote:
DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500
Memory Type: DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500, DDR3 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
Slots: 2
Each memory slot can hold DDR3 PC3-10600, DDR3 PC3-8500 with a maximum of 4GB per slot.*
Do you want to add on to what you currently have, or just get a totally new RAM kit?
