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.

            I needed more memory to run a specific application that demanded it. Getting the Dell case open was a pain, but installing the memory was simple and straightforward - but it would have been nice to have had a little info on any precautions to observe with installation.

            But the memory works great, all needs met or exceeded. I've bought numerous memory modules from Crucial and I'm sure I'll buy mnay more.

                            I needed to increase the total memory for an older development desktop that had 1 Gig previously (4x256MB). Yanking 2 sticks and installing the 2 1G has increased the performance of this desktop quite a bit. It's much more responsive and builds are a bit faster. The memory tool worked great, I just plugged in the model and the correct memory part# came out.
