Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)

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.

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.

Intel 915G chipset

Chipset is a set of integrated circuits that have a specific purpose in a computer system, a group of microchips used together to perform a single task.

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display.

              Upgraded from 1 GB to 4 GB under Windows XP, SP 3, knowing that not all of it would be fully accessible (3.25 GB is, apparently). Clear, expected improvement for multiple programs running simultaneously, multiple tabs in Firefox browser. Crucial's website having spelled out that this memory would work for my exact Dell model saved me from having to research that aspect, and basically made the sale (I'd had a previous positive purchase from Crucial, as well).

                [...]Although the memory cards came w/o instructions, it turned out to be fairly straight forward. Web site was easy to navigate and very helpful in selected the right product. Would certainly recommend to a friend.
