Your OptiPlex GX270 Series (Desktop and Mini-Tower) System Specs

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

Memory:

DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 4GB
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.

                The extra memory did solve slow pc performance. And the web site directed me to the appropriately correct memory, which is very important.

                  I bought 2 gigs of ram from crucial, one gig for a Dell and one gig for an Emachines. it worked in the dell when added to the ram it all ready had,(256). It did NOT work in the Emachines when added to the 512 it all ready had. I ended up removing the 256 from the dell and adding the gig I bought for the Emachines. The dell now has two gigs and works great. The Emachines had problems booting to the original configuration and had to be restarted 21 times before it finally started properly. (it still acts funny and needs to be booted 2 or 3 times before it will start properly)
