Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2

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.

    Dell E310 match made in heaven ;)

    Installed in my mother-inlaw's old DELL E310 desktop computer. It was really at the end of it's rope. Slow to do anything, slower with multiple applications open. This was not a complete fix, but it is better. With a register ccleaner, searched through cnet to find, and then defragged the harddrive.

    She noticed the speed up, will add a pci video card, wish crucial made them! But the memory has by far made the most difference in the performance of the system. It's an old computer, but if a couple sticks of memory keeps her from having to by another computer, then it was well worth it.

    ALWAYS TRUST CRUCIAL! They have never let me down. Over the years I have used nearly every common label of ram. I have had some problems with compatibility with a few of them...

    NEVER had a problem with crucial memory, use their memory finder tool, and if you are not sure, just call them. They are always helpful, and explain why you should get the recommended memory. They do not try to upsell you, like some others...

    I get it here, unless for a friend who insists on bargain basement memory in their machine. But Crucial's price is competitive with other quality memory bought from other online retailers.

    GO crucial and you want regret it. Tell them DB sent ya! (they wont have a clue who I am ;)

                          My wife has been complaining about how slow her computer was so, I went to the Crucial.com website and used their memory system review tool and identified the current memory installed and the full memory capacity available for her computer. The tool provided the memory upgrade changes recommended by Crucial. I went ahead and purchased the memory to fully upgrade her computer; installation was easy. The computer runs really fast now.
