Short of opening up my computer and pulling an old RAM card out, is there a way to tell what I should be buying? I have 1 slot left as I recall and I would like to fill it. I can't remember the numbers and junk.
custom made computer? You have to know what your mobo requires.
Try crucial.com....They have a system scan and usually cheap reliable ram too.

There are some software tools that can identify RAM but aren't always reliable.
Do you know your motherboard chipset? Or if this is an off-shelf system, what is the make/model? Pulling a RAM module is probably not helpful if you don't know what you're looking at -- not all modules are labeled. Best bet is to know the specs of your system/motherboard.
I used a system benchmark tool that does what Dmo said and gives you the information on your Motherboard and what RAM it uses.
