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.

Graphics Card A circuit board fitted to a computer containing the necessary video memory and other electronics to provide a bitmap display.

    I have been amazed at how convenient it is to purchase from Crucial. I am not a computer geek and I have to admit that I would have had a difficult time knowing exactly what type of RAM to buy if it wasn't for Crucials computer ram checker which I downloaded. I was able to identify which Ram was best for me and it gave me several price options. This is the second time I have used Crucial and both times the items arrived at my door quicker than I expected.

              I've been building computer sytems for years and what I dread most is all the time trying to figure the model number and type of memory I need for a certain computer. In this instance it was a Compaq desktop. All I did was type in the model number and Voila!; everything thing I needed to know about that computer and buying memory for it. Click and purchase. When I installed it took three minutes and done. How easy could it be. The new memory made Windows 7 sing.

                Easy to install as described. Before the installation upgrade, my pc was very slow during operation. After, the install, it ran great and fast. What I like about Crucial, for a novice, I can down their program and it would give you what you need for your pc and directions. This was my second install.
