Well you can surely upgrade the ram on your dell optiplex. as it dose support ram up to 2 gb. but just make sure that the add on ram that you purchase is of the same technical specification as the one currently installed on your system...

    the 620 supports the higher speed but the 520 which you have does not support 667 highest you can go is 533.

  • Ekse Jan 31, 2009

    The link given is for 620, not 520. Its a diffrent desktop computer.


  • Maximum Memory:
    4096MB


  • Slots:
    4 (2 banks of 2)


  • Standard Memory:
    512MB removable


  • USB Support:
    2.x Compliant



  • Yours only Supports 2048 MB with 533MHZ.

    • If you are really using Dell Optiplex GX520 System You will not be able to use 667Mhz DDr2 on it, 533 is the fastest supported, the 667 memory might work at 533 speed.


  • Ekse Feb 01, 2009

    Hi again

    Please confirm, is your desktop a GX520?

  • Ekse Feb 02, 2009

    When you turn the computer on, does it really state that you have 4GB of Ram Runing at 667MHZ?

  • Ekse Feb 02, 2009

    Are you ******* with me? Dell documents clearly state that this GX520 Supports 2 DDR2 modules at speeds 400 and 533mhz up to 2GB.

    GX620 on the other hand supports up to 4GB.

    I have a Dell Dimension 2400. I want to upgrade from 512mb of memory to 1GB. The manual says I have two memory connectors. Do I get the 1GB, or two 512mb to upgrade? Thank you for your response.


    Hello

    Yes, you can upgrade your system upto 2GB RAM, buy another 512MB RAM DDR 333Mhz and install it to empty slot of RAM, it will upgrade the RAM to 1 GB.

    Hope it will help, if so do rate the solution

    Good Luck

    I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


    Your Intel D845GVSR has,

    1. Two ram slots.

    2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

    3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

    4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
    DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

    This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

    (Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
    512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
    1024MB = 1GB

    HOW TO FIND RAM CAPACITY OF INTEL D102GGC2


    Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
    Maximum Memory Capacity: 2048MB
    * Currently Installed Memory: 512mb Number of Banks: 2
    * Dual Channel Support: Yes
    * CPU Manufacturer: GenuineIntel
    * Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
    Your MotherBoard Supports up to 2GB of memory.

    You have 512mb, you can add 512mb to the empty slot.
    , however,It's a good idea to keep them the same if you can.
    You can install memory that is: DDR2 PC2-5300 (PC2-5300 is 667Mhz) you can use 1gb memory in each module for best performance and matching pairs since your motherborad supports dual channel.you can use sound card and SATA hard disk for higher disk support

    1gb shows 512mb only


    Your mobo is quite old and its chipset can only support a maximum of 512MB PER SIDE (technically called a bank) of a memory module. I would guess that your 1gb memory module has 8 chips that are all located on one side of the module, putting all of the 1 GB on one bank. Thus, only 512MB of your 1 gb RAM is detected and usable by your motherboard (the remaining 32 mb is most likely being used by your onboard video). You'll need to find a double sided 1 gb memory module (usually 8 chips on each side).

    Want to buy more RAM..


    Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

    Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
    Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
    Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
    Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
    MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


    If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::
