Default memory upgrade

sponsored links

 
I know this is a newbie question but I really want to know this. I have a dell dimension 8100 and I want to upgrade my memory to 512mb but when I open my computer, I believe what I have in my com is rambus. I want to know do I have to buy rambus memory to upgrade or I can just buy regluar memory to upgrade coz I bought a DIMM ram and it does not fit.

THX

Go to [url=***********.crucial.com/store/ListMfgr.Asp?Category=1Personal+Computing&submit=G oCrucial and use their memory selector. It will tell you what you need and also how much it will cost.

You'll have to buy rambus memory. They cost almost twice as much as normal ram but it's super fast. Normal ram will not be compatible.

Also, I could be wrong about this but I think rambus memory works in pairs. So if you want 512mb memory, you'll have to get 2 sticks of 256mb. This type of memory is quite costly, it's no wonder it was never widely adopted.
