Summary: My computer already had one 2 GB stick of memory in it, and had one empty slot, so I ordered this. When my computer nerd friend came over, he had it installed in minutes, and I now have double the memory in my mom's old compaq unit. Now, the computer doesn't slow down when I have 27 tabs open in my CHROME browser. If you have an empty memory slot, then you should DEFINITELY get the same (or equivalent) memory that is in the other slot.

Summary: Wasn't compatible with two five hundred set. however I placed my set of 2 pony 1 Gigabyte into the two other slots and now have four gigabytes of memory with the board using 65 megabytes leaving 335 of physical and functional compatible memory. I judge it as 10 if using a 1 to 10 for rating.
