ANSWER #2 of 3

You can use a software called CPU-Z to see the exact modules you have running in your system. It also lists the speeds at which they are running at.

Also, a general rule to follow is that if it is a computer, like a desktop, you are using a form of DDR memory. DDR comes in three forms: DDR1, DDR2, and DDR3. The only difference between these form sis the speed at which they run on.

If you use a laptop, then they use RAM sticks on the SO-DIMM form.

Hope this helped you out. :)
