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.

    I ordered 2 gigs of memory for my DELL Desktop to begin to bring the system up to speed (literally.
    Crucial made it easy...they scanned my system to find out what was there and then told me what would work best with my system. I ordered a kit. They sent me a "how to install memory" by email complete with what not to do. It took longer to open the desktop than it did to install the memory. I always need "fast and accurate."
    These guys are good. A+

          I was tearing my hair out every time I used my computer! It was so slow and after 15 minutes it would freeze up making it imposible to finish what I was doing...until I bought this product! I am not a computer person at all and I was able to install it in minutes after watching the video on the Crucial site. My computer is super fast and works as good as the day we bought it!
