Your OptiPlex GX620 Series (Desktop, Mini-Tower, and 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

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (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.

    This hasn't increased my system's speed *quite* as much as advertised: available memory is 3.4 GB, not the four I would have expected (I suspect this may have something to do with my BIOS, which I don't want to mess with!). Still, 3.4 GB means this means that my system's speed has more than tripled, and I can now run more resource-hungry applications with no problems---and at less than twenty dollars a gig, it's quite a bargain!

                    Extends the life of an otherwise good computer with limited memory, much less expensive than a new computer and just as effective.

                        Computer was very slow and this added memory helps, but not as much as I had hoped. I still may need a new computer.

                            I just pluged them into the empty slots & power up the system knew I had added memory & asked to confirm, I did and just kept on trucking. No more popup saying I was useing excessive memory.
