Computer Memory Help!

I have a Dell Dimension e521,Athlon 64x2 3800MHZ cpu, with a Nvidia Nforce 430 chipset,4 slots, 4GB max; I'd like to buy memory but I'm uncertain whether Corsair "xms2 2GB (2x1GB) 240 pin-DDR2 800 (pc2 6400) dual channel desktop memory kit" will work. Please see: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145177&nm_mc=EMC-IGNEFL110608&cm_mmc=EMC-IGNEFL110608-_-Memory-_-L5C-_-20145177
I don't want to spend the money without a second opinion. I've received a lot of conflicting advice.

Thank You.

I would not do it since your computer is recomended for pc 4200(533) and that chip set is recomended for pc6400(800) this matters for the life of the other components not to mention that your computer won't post and could cause dammage, even though your board supports dual channel ddr2 , and I think you should get some memory that is not going to wear your computer down so that you end up having to worry about other repairs also , stay within the recomended speed , so no i wouldn't use those chips in there , and i wouldn't advise someone to do that , but i can see the deal you were looking at!

I removed the old memory and installed 4 1GB cards and the computer doesn't work? Help.


Adding new memory can be tricky. First the new memory has to be compatible with the motherboard.
By that I mean, you need to know how much memory the motherboard can max out at.Can it take only 2 GB or 4GB etc. And it has to be a match to what memory speed your motherboard can handle. If your motherboard takes DDR than you must put DDR in, if it takes DDR2 than you must put DDR2 in. Look at the old memory, and try to match all the numbers you find on it. Than look up the memory specs for the motherboard to find out how much it can take.
Any computer will not operate corecctly if the memory is the wrong kind, or installed wrong.

Total newbie here - how do I add more memory to my DELL Dimension 2300? I have my cpu open and i am replacing my fan also.


Well your Dell 2300 has a total max. memory of 1 GB from both slot.
If you already have (2) 512MB RAM in the slot then thats the max it can handle.

Dell 2300 only has 2 memory slots. Memory comes in 1- 128MB, 256MB and 512MB PC-133 DIMM modules. So if you want to max it out get (2) 512 MB PC-133 DIMM.


Note:

You must wear a static strap or ground yourself first on the computer chassis before you touch any thing inside your computer
to discharge any static electricity

For further instruction check this out:
