    It's going to be 1066 MHz DDR3. Get a dual-channel 8GB kit. Reputable brands are all over the place, get whichever you can for the cheapest price via Amazon, Newegg, or other vendors.

    Dual-channel information can be found here. It's basically two sticks of RAM that are the same being ran in two slots.

    You can do it yourself, it's quite simple.
