You should be able to but it would be better with more ram, maximum for that board is 2 gig, and a bigger hard drive.The graphics is also a consideration, if it's onboard you could do with a better graphics card. You could add an AGP graphics card. Specifications for that motherboard are here: Specs.

SOURCE: Dell PC Desktop Optiplex GX260 Doesn't boot

Open up the case and remove any add in cards and memory modules. Try to start up by adding these back one at a time until the unit stops booting normally. The light combination is not one recognised in the user manual so I am guessing you have a non-descript fault with one of your components. Be careful when you open the case as to not disturb the ribbon to the motherboard which controls the power, I have had a very long experience trying to get one of these reconnected!

Just below the power button, there is a light grey panel with the Dell logo on it. Lift this open; careful, it does not open all the way.

Having the same proble with Dell optiplex GX260 very very very slow it takes a day to load Xp SP2 and I added up to 1GB still the PC is very slow. The machine fresh loaded no application loaded only XP...


These things are notorious for having the CPU heatsink grease dry up (and the processor speed steps down) but I'd also scan the hard disk for bad sectors.
If the fan has started sounding like a jet engine, it's more likely that it needs new heatsink grease on the CPU.

Can I use DDR400 (PC3200) RAm in my Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop? Thanks


Yes.

Maximum Total Amount is 2GB.
Maximum Amount for EACH Ram Memory slot is 1GB.

Use unbuffered, low density, Non-ECC.
2.5 volt to 2.6 volt
Chip configuration is 128Meg X 64 for a 1GB ram memory module.
(Ram memory 'stick')

Suggest you watch where you buy it.
Cheap costing ram memory = cheap quality ram memory
Doesn't have to 'break the bank' in cost, but if it's too cheap to be true, it usually is.
Buy from a reputable ram dealer.

Why does a 1GB DDR PC2700 333MHz RAM show as 32Mb in a Dell Optiplex GX260.I want to upgrade from the existing 256Mb and hopefully run the two RAM together


Hi,
It is because this computer only supports 200 or 266 MHZ SDRAM modules. The one that you are trying to install is not compatible.

Please see this link for reference

DELL OptiPlex GX150 Upgrading


The fastest processor you can install in a GX150 is a Pentium III 1.13 Ghz processor.

The Socket 370 was a design used only for P3 processors.

Max RAM for that system is 512MB no way to upgrade past that.

If you paid $100 for a GX150, you paid way too much (You can buy a refurbished Dell Dimension C521 for $225 at their refurb site)
