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.

    My wife's reaction to my excitement over a simple RAM upgrade was rolling eyes - until she booted up for the first time. Then, she wanted to know what I did with her old machine.

    Clean, straightforward install. Kudos to the "How To" videos...

      Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Dell Dimension E510 System:

      I have purchased from Crucial several times in the past and have always been able to easily find the right equipment for my system upgrades time after time. Their database of computers takes the quess work out of digging for the right memory type. I purchased 3GB of memory to upgrade my Dad's PC from 512MB and wow what a difference. It was way over due. Thanks again for a great experience.

          Great product and easy to install. The only bad thing was that I had to wait 3 more days to get the memory, since they were out of stock when my web order went through. Crucial, did inform me via e-mail that they were out of stock. And they sent an e-mail when the memory was shipped. I would recommend ordering memory to anyone. It was easy and quick.
