The easiest way is to go to Crucial Memory from the PC and click on the 'Scan my system' button and allow it to install and run the scanner. This will detect the motherboard and what RAM it has installed. The site will then recommend the RAM that will work in the PC, and their prices are fairly good compared to other sites and their service has always been excellent when I have used them in the past.
