@gettingold , welcome to the forum.

 

Yes, you can purchase additional memory for your computer.  Here is the Motherboard Specifications page: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-a6600-desktop-pc-series/3793920/model/3832285/docum...

 

Look at the section titled "Memory upgrade information" for this information.  Also, here is the memory that is recommended by Crucial Memory: https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hp---compaq/pavilion-a6660z-cto

 

Crucial makes very good memory for OEM computers like HP's.  If they recommend their memory it is guaranteed to work.

 

You should use CPU-Z to find the manufacturer and timings of the current memory: https://download.cnet.com/CPU-Z/3000-2086_4-10050423.html

 

This information is the the Tab titled "SPD".

 

Once you have this information, you can contact Crucial's Tech Support to see if the current memory will be compatible with their memory.  If not, you can replace it with 4x2 GB of memory.  The motherboard has Dual channel memory architecture.  This means that it is best to install the memory in exact pairs to get the best performance from it: https://www.crucial.com/articles/about-memory/what-is-dual-channel-memory
