When ordering ram memory for wifes computer

She has a Dell , Optiplex GX 260.
I had "Crucial" scan it for what it may need.
They say PC 2700 card.
MOst others that I filled in the necc. blanks to find out what type says:
PC 2100 card
It also gave the normal. 1GB card ( which I wanted ) 184 pin,
DIMM, DDR, (only the speed was different ) NON ECC Unbuffered etc.

So could anyone advise me which way to go and if there are any benefits to either or disadvantages.

I am told LOW DENSITY is better then HIGH DENSITY.

Go with Crucial. I recently used then as the vendor to get memory for a middle school and all of their memory fit with no problems, the shipping was fast and the scanner worked with new and old computers. I would go for the pc2700, although your wife's computer can take both types, faster is better and the higher the number the faster the ram.

Dell optiplex gx 260 180w power supply. My hp monitor's best resolution is 1920 by 1200 at 60hz. The gx can only manage 1600 by 1200 at 60hz. Have you a solution to this problem?


Hi Trevarth,

The Optiplex GX 260 was outfitted with either Integrated Intel Extreme graphic or a 4x AGP video card. In either case if you try to change the resolution and 1920 X 1200 is not an option, the video card does not support that high of a resolution. If you want the higher resolution you will have to buy an AGP video card. When selecting a card, look at the specs and make sure that the higher resolution is supported. The good news is that AGP cards are not that expensive. Here are a couple site you can find video cards.

You can find very cheap used one here:

but be careful to check the specs before you order.

Hope this helps

Can I install any ram memorie cards that will fit my Dell gx260


The memory has to be the same type that is in your PC. Not necessarily the same manufacturer.

Your PC came with PC2700 DDR memory Dimms.
If you have DDR memory sticks from your other PC, then it may work.
Just make sure you unplug the PC and touch the metal case before you pick up and install the memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
