How to know exact name of ram?

Hi, I am looking for stores (Like eBay or Amazon or Sears ect)-(Any tech place that isn't a third party like memory4less or buysamsungparts) I think I have a
Samsung PC3-10600 DDR3-1333MHz M471B5273DH0-CH9 1.5v
but I'm not sure. Is there any way to find a cheap, 4gb, 1 stick of ram? My budget is 45$ USD.

You can use a program like cpu-z

CPU-Z CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

Do you currently have two sticks of ram?

No I don't. That's why I'm trying to figure out exactly what ram I have and CPU-Z doesn't work. It doesn't list the name of what I have.
I'm thinking I have
Samsung PC3-10600 DDR3-1333MHz M471B5273DH0-CH9 1.5v
for ram but I'm not sure. Today is cyber Monday and I really need a cheap 4gb ram stick! And I need it to work!

Kingston ValueRAM 4GB Notebook Memory Module - DDR3, 1333MHz, PC3-10600, SODIMM, CL 9, 204 Pin, 1.5V - KVR13S9S8/4 at TigerDirect.com

ADATA AD3S1333C4G9-R Premier Series Notebook Memory Module - 4GB, PC3-10600, DDR3-1333MHz, CL9, 204-pin SODIMM, 1.5V, Non-ECC, Unbuffered at TigerDirect.com

Either of these should work.

In CPUID look in the SPD tab and it should list the part number.

Shouldn't it have the same exact things in the name? I need a Samsung RAM. Not another one. Plus, doesn't it need to have the
M471B5273DH0-CH9
In it? Like

No, ram does not have to be exactly the same.

Just as long as the speeds are correct on the ram/motherboard

To be honest, I'd just stop by a Tigerdirect or something similar if you have one in your town. They will be able to get you something for $45 and you can show them the Ram stick. Again, it does NOT have to be samsung.

Yes, every link to ram posted in this thread will work with your laptop.

I would still just go to a PC store in town. Same price and you get it today. I don't see any Ram deals specific to Cyber Monday.
