how much RAM are you looking for?

and what are you going to do with this RAM. Gaming or web surfing?

3.5gigs is all your system will recongize (assuming you don't have 64bit OS)

so i would just pick up a 2gig kit from newegg.

Use their Memory guide to find a suitable RAM for you.

EDIT:
already configured to your computer.

getting 2 1gig packs should be good.

Be sure you don't mix sizes (ex: 2 512MBs and one 1 Gigabyte stick.) This can be bad for your computer. You can however mix brands, Crucial and Kingston. Just DON'T Mix sizes.
