If you use that pc on the crucial site, it can do a scan and tell you what is suitable - then you can look around for the best deal.

Or you can just type in the motherboard

RAM & SSD Upgrades | GIGABYTE GA-G41M-ES2L (rev. 1.0) | Crucial UK

That tells you it is DDR2-PC2-6400 240 pin - single sided for that machine

Then you know what to look for at your preferred vendor. For a machine that old, ram is available for pennies at places such as cex- for example

Crucial want 56 for 2x2gb - can be had at cex for 4

CeX (UK) : Stock search

DDR2-PC2-6400 240 pin

@S1W2, typing in motherboard spec guarantees RAM MOD internal architecture will meet mobo requirement, correct?
