Your dc7700 Series Small Form Factor System Specs

System specs as shipped by the manufacturer.
Scan your system to view your specific system configuration.

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
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.

      Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a HP - Compaq dc7700 Series Small Form Factor System:

      Crucial is great!I needed a faster, more uptodate computer, but I had very little free cash. I took a gamble and bought an HP DC7700 Tower PC Core2 Duo desktop from [@]. Computer worked fine, but it used an odd, 240 pin memory. I could not find the exact memory for the computer on [@] or on other retailer websites. I used Crucial's memory analyzer tool for windows. It identified my system and showed me a few SKUs to choose from. I bought 2 gigs for a good price. It arrived 1 day after the estimated arrival time (during Christmas season) I am now using a fast 3 gig system.

        After the scanner picked, I bought the selection and it worked great. My business apps are pretty memory-intensive (who's isn't?) and this was a GREAT, low-cost, process improvement.
