Best way to find out is try it. If it doesn't work send it back.

Tiger Direct... yick... the only place i will buy my memory from is Crucial. I have not heard too many good reviews of Tiger direct. Most people don't understand there's only a handful of tier one level RAM makers... all the others are just boil down to resellers.
