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.

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.

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.

          Just installed my new sticks (4) or RAM today. Was able to determine what sticks I needed, and what my computer capacity would hold, with their loadible on site tool. What a great feature. I was able to easily make the installation myself, and when completed, it works like a dream. Could not be happier with the results or with my 2nd purchase from Crucial. You will be as well.

                Upgraded my Dell Inspiron from 2 Gb to 8 Gb RAM. The price was excellent and the improved performance is noteable. Best thing I could have done to improve my otherwise great desktop.
