    I'm planning to upgrade my mum's PC. But i'm not sure what RAM i should get..

    Currently her specs are..

    Intel Pentium 4 Processor 534 Supporting Hyper Threading Technology

    3.06GHz, 1MB L2 Cache. 533 MHz FSB 90nm

    512MB PC4200 DDR2

    Will this RAM be fine?

    RAM speed and FSB are often different, I'd stick to PC4200.

    It will work, it will just run slower at the 4200 speed.

    I don't know where you are, but newegg.com has a large selection to choose from.
