Your desire to match the memory that is in the computer is best but it requires getting the make and model number of the RAM in order to do that.  OEM build parts typically do not all come from the same manufacturer, so either actually look at the memory to get that information or you can use CPU-Z

That software can usually give the correct info on what is installed, without opening the case.  Of course you will eventually need to open the case to install the new memory.  You can then search for the memory needed/wanted with this new found information.  It is best to use matched memory when expanding, so if you cannot find an exact match, Crucial upgrades are guaranteed compatible when you order from Crucial.com
