I want to buy an additional 8GB RAM for him to install.  

But....I know nothing about brands, compatibility etc.

I'm not seeing that PC model when i look it up. when looking at RAM compatibility, you need to look at the motherboard, the other specs you listed are fine but without knowing the motherboard, you can't know if the ram will be fully functional or not. I'm new to the whole PC realm too, but i just upgraded my RAM and doubled it.

Install and run RAMMON. It will identify which RAM you currently have then go buy a stick of the same.
