Storage:

SATA

Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

Chipset:

ATI Radeon EXPRESS 1100 chipset

Chipset is a set of integrated circuits that have a specific purpose in a computer system, a group of microchips used together to perform a single task.

Graphics Card:

PCI Express x16 Graphics

External Connector: 15-hole connector

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display. Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate they support.

      I installed this memory in an old Compaq computer that is running Ubuntu. The latest revision slowed the computer down, but the added memory really speeded it back up.

        I just wish I had known about crucial a long time ago.
        I performed the on-line scan of my computer and found that there was room for improvement. I ordered the two,one gig. each, memory stick kit from crucial and carefully installed them my self. When I turned my computer back on the new higher speed was astonishing. I really do have more time with my family now that I can answer E-mails and zoom from web site to web site so much quicker. Thanks crucial.
