What do I need to know in order to figure out what to buy for a memory upgrade? I've tried two so far, and the computer wouldn't recognize either of them... :(

Go to crucial.com

Walk through and see what they recommend. If you choose to buy through them, expect it to cost 10-15% more than other places, but they guarantee that it is compatible.

hehe. I usually go to crucial.com to find out what kind of memory I need and then go to newegg to get it.

Before Crucial was taken over by the current company, it used to have the cheapest price around and I used to order from them.

To get what I wanted, 2 - 1G's it cost $85 at crucial. Newegg wanted $95 with a $25 dollar rebate. Newegg total = $70. I guess the decision was whether I would actually send in for the rebate or not. Sometimes I'm good with those, sometimes not so much. :p
