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.

Graphics Card:

AGP 8X Graphics

External Connector: 15-hole connector

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display. Adaptors vary in the resolution (number of pixels) and number of colours they can display, and in the refresh rate they support. These parameters are also limited by the monitor to which the adaptor is connected.

          Web Site was excellent, I knew what to buy. [...] Prices were reasonable. My 5 year old computer was running so slow, due to all the programs and media I had added. With the increased memory, it is now lightning fast and actually faster than the day I got it. Thanks Crucial

              Have an older computer that I was running XP with 1GB Ram. Had constant slow page loading and freeze ups. This computer maxes at 2GB, but installing 2-1GB sticks from Crucial has made quite a difference in its performance.

              Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a HP Presario SR1030NX System:

              I recently upgraded to Windows 7 and noticed that my PC was running slower than I wanted. I used Crucial's download program so I could find out how much RAM I could add to my computer to increase it's performance. The recommendation for my computer was 2 1G RAM sticks. I easily replaced my old RAM with the new 1GB and I now have an acceptable Windows 7 machine without spending too much money to upgrade an older machine.

              I highly recommend this product.
