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.

ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 chipset

Chipset is a set of integrated circuits that have a specific purpose in a computer system, a group of microchips used together to perform a single task.

Graphics Card:

PCI Express x16 Graphics

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.

          My HP Presario is at least 6 years old, but it still runs great. I'm very diligent about keeping the machine running fast and clean. I run virus and malware protection often. I keep the cache cleaned and I keep unnecessary software off the machine. Addeding 1 GB of memory for [$]was the best thing I've done for this old machine. Great product. Great Price.

              Tripled RAM in order to speed up browsing, e-mail, etc...

              Works as expected. I haven't tried out any heavy duty video editing or anything like that.

              Can't comment yet on durability since I've only had it installed for about a month now.

                I purchased these modules for my father-in-law. [...]He had never installed memory before, but he found the task very simple. Crucial's online instructions were very helpful. He was updating his four-year old computer from 512 MB to 2 GB. The machine had become almost unusable. Once installed he raved about the performance and said it was better than the day he got it.I am a storage engineer and have trusted Crucial for many years in my personal systems. One just can't go wrong. [...]Another job well done!

                    This review is for the company Crucial. We have ordered in the past and always receive product faster than expected. Prices are good and the fact that they scan your computer to let you know exactly which memory and how much will work is great. One of the main reasons we go with Crucial.
