                  I upgraded the ram on an older Dell Dimension 4700 from 512mb pc3200 to the Crucial igig x2 pc6400 sticks.
                  What a difference!
                  The Dimension is now running the way it should with the new ram installed.

                        I have had this computer since around 2004 and I had been getting more and more frustrated from freeze ups while browsing the Internet. Now with this memory, that no longer happens no matter how many pages I have up. And applications load very quickly. Very easy to install, and very happy about this purchase.
