Your OptiPlex GX270 Series (Desktop and Mini-Tower) System Specs

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

Memory:

DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200

Memory Type: DDR PC2700, DDR PC3200, DDR (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.

    Comments about Crucial 512MB Upgrade for a Dell Optiplex GX270 Series (Desktop and Mini-Tower) System:

    So far we are very satisfied with the RAM memory purchased and with the speed and accuracy of Crucial's service.

    It takes quite a bit of effort to pop the cards into the PC chassis. At first I was afraid I would break something, but I kept pushing harder and harder gradually and they eventually snapped in place. The PC booted up without a hitch.

      No company does it better. Start with the Crucial scanner, the rest is a "no-brainer".

      I have bought from crucial over many years and have never been let down!

      Clock speed means nothing if you don't have RAM
