It is very simple,

This is a great way to find out the kind of RAM (memory) you have and how much of it your motherboard will support. Upgrading your RAM is the most cost-efficient way to increasing your computers speed and performance. Each RAM module can cost anywhere from $15-$40, depending on what kind your motherboard requires, for most basic users.

Go to www.crucial.com. Use their Online System Scanner, it should be on their home page.

After this, Crucial should have recommended what the maximum amount your computer can handle and the specifications on the kind of RAM you should purchase. Don't know where to buy it? Crucial, Newegg, Geeks.com are the places I look.

Also, check out this guide by Artellos if you are looking to increase system performance/speed. What makes your machine slow?

Ask questions if need be!
