I posted awhile ago about installing memory, ( which I was originally a bit apprehensive of installing ) and all the information I got was very helpful, ( so much so that I was confident enough to open up my computer ) but turns out I had gotten the wrong kind of memory. (n)

Anyway, I'm gonna need some help finding out what kind I need. Hopefully, I can get this right this time around. I have a Dimension Dell 2400 computer w/ a 2.39 gigahertz Intel Celeron processor.

Now, I'm not exactly sure what information is needed for you guys to give me a recommendation here, so just let me know if there's anything else you need to know.

Your computer uses DDR 333, PC2700. I don't believe the motherboard in that model will have support for anything faster. Any size up to 512MB should function correctly, but if you want to go with a gig, I'd call Dell and make sure the motherboard supports it.

Your Dell supports up to 1G of memory, Check the link

Memory: Architecture DDR SDRAM
Memory connectors: two
Memory capacities: 128-, 256-, or 512-MB
Minimum memory: 128 MB shared DDR SDRAM
Maximum memory: 1 GB
Memory type: PC2100 (266-MHz) or PC2700 (333-MHz) DDR SDRAM (non-ECC)

NOTE: Between 32 and 64 MB of system memory may be allocated to support graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors.

Since this has a Celeron in it, I'd chedk to see if it has 2100 installed. You want to match what is already installed unless you want to upgrade to the faster speed memory.

What about the brand? Is that gonna make a difference? Because I think I remember hearing that certain brands aren't compatible with certain systems.

Oh, and aside from that, do I need to know anything other than DDR 333, PC2700, and whatever size I wanna get? ( which will probably be 512MB )

If you read the link I post above you will notice it says (Your Dell Dimension 2400 only supports modules made with a specific type of chip) To be on the safe side I would check with Dell or you cound purchase from the link, they say they are guaranteed to work.
