Your Dimension E510 System Specs

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

Memory:

DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 PC2-6400, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 8GB
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.

    Five Year Old Desktop Runs Like New

    Actually better than new, but there wasn't enough room to write that :-) Upgraded a Dell Dimension E510 from 512 MB to 2 GB, and the difference is amazing. Installation was easy.....Read complete review

    Actually better than new, but there wasn't enough room to write that :-) Upgraded a Dell Dimension E510 from 512 MB to 2 GB, and the difference is amazing. Installation was easy... just be sure to press the cards firmly into place. I have nothing but good things to say about this product.

                            Comments about Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2) Upgrade for a Dell Dimension E510 System:

                            The product selection process on the website was easy to use, [...] and the memory worked with my existing (slower) memory. Installation was only slightly challenging... and a little hard on the hands, but that's more about the computer's memory slots than the memory itself. I would definitely buy Crucial products again.
