Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I'm buying more memory from Dell in the form of 2: 512MB cards. This leaves me with the cards I'm removing which are 2: 256MB cards. Can I give these to friends/family who own Dells that may not be exactly the 4300 series? -
In other words... - are there such things as card compatible cousins to the 430 series?
Are you talking about the memory sticks inside the computer?
If so, then yes. If you have DDR memory, it will work in most computers that use DDR memory. It's best not to mix memory, so you'd want your friends to completely remove their old stuff first.
When you compare your RAM to theirs, match up the length and where the notches are along the gold contacts of the memory sticks. If they match perfectly, then you're good to go!
From oldest to newest, we have these kinds of memory
Brand new PC's are using 2 and 3 (2 being the most common) Most PC's are just plain DDR because that used to be the most common. Other than this, there are other differences in memory, but they moreoften don't make a difference. =-]
