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 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.

Chipset:

AMD 780G 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

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.

            Hardest part of the installation was getting into the tower, actual installation was a snap (pun intended). Been running great for just over two weeks.

              Comments about Crucial 4GB kit (2GBx2) Upgrade for a Gateway GT5676 System:

              This memory came direct from Crucial in a 4GB kit that I did not see anywhere else. Further than that, this memory was compatible with my new PC when the PC manufacturer itself did not have the requisite memory available on their website. As far as I could tell, Crucial was the sole consumer manufacturer of this particular module. Even though I have always had difficulty with the arcane world of compatible RAM, this kit worked immediately and correctly.
