The correct ones are already in the computer in this situation especially if the computer is quite old it could be a problem getting them from PC vendor's website if they don't hold them that long like HP don't. Most H/W manufacturer's I've seen recommend getting them from the PC vendor because they may be uniquely configured for a particular machine by the vendor. It's a lot quicker as well to have them all bundled up together for restoration in the event of a clean install. I've been doing it since I got into computers.
