Your Dimension E510 System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
Slots: 4

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

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.

          Effortless process. Simply typed in name and model of my computer and ordered what Crucial recommended. Shipped quickly and arrived before scheduled date. Out with the old Ram and in with the new in minutes. Computer recognized it with no errors.

            I upgraded my Dimension E510 from 1 to 4GB so I could play Civilization IV on larger map size settings. The upgrade has worked. I have not noticed any improvement in other applications such as MS Word and such.

                    I use the added memory for multi-tasking in the mp3 production environment (recording), photo organization, & general surfing. My speed didn;t increase a lot, but it did get better! Search speeds increased by 20% or so. The product is affordbale, easy to install, and beats buying a new computer I just don't need in the home environment. AN excellent product, delivered on time, and installed without a hitch!
