Your Dimension 9150 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.

    I've been working with/around personal computers since the first IBM PC was invented. I've upgraded a lot of computer memory in those years and I always use crucial memory. You can analyze your computer with an online program which then tells you how much memory you have, where it's located, and how many slots you have available. It then recommends different upgrade options. You choose one, add to your cart, [...]. If you need install instructions those are available to you on line. I will never use any other brand of memory sticks. Thanks Crucial!

        Speed increase wasn't what I'd expected but my bandwith is mostly to blame. I only added one gigabyte.
