You want DDR DIMM, I can tell you that for sure 100%.

what make ur processor is?

intel /amd?

if u r on intel, go for ATi, if u r on AMD, go for nVidia.

else, randomaly choice is get urself ATi Built 9700 PRO (whihc u wont find brand new, unless u jump into ATi museum).

else, GeForce 4600 Ti was as well good.

right click my computer icon, it will open properties,and you'll see there, what processor u have


else, www.cpuid.com

this is very good site, go there, download the CPUZ free software, and click the cpuid, and it will tell everything what u have inside your box.
