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.

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.

      Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq Pavilion a6300f System:

      Desktop Computer went blue and after some research on my laptop about error code possible bad connection of Ram boards. After removing cards and cleaning connection still same problems. So i tried replacing only one card at a time. First card same problem, second card computer booted, so I tried working board in other slot and computer booted which told me it was not slot. After in hour or two internet research found Curcial. Very happy with their site and product. Was very hesitant about a web site scaning my computer, but did it anyway worked great and told me what I needed and at the best price I could find. Thanks Curcial
