Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.
240-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR2 SDRAM memory for desktop computers. DDR2 is a leading-edge generation of memory with an improved architecture that allows it to transmit data very fast.
Each 240-pin DIMM provides a 64-bit data path (72-bit for ECC or registered or Fully Buffered modules). (The Ballistix™ and Ballistix Tracer™ high-performance memory do not come in 72-bit or registered modules.)
To use DDR2 memory, your system motherboard must have 240-pin DIMM slots and a DDR2-enabled chipset. A DDR2 SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket or a DDR DIMM socket.
The number of black components on a 240-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 120 pins on the front and 120 pins on the back, for a total of 240. 240-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.18 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 240-pin DDR2 DIMMs, 184-pin DDR DIMMs, and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 240-pin DIMMs and 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins. The notch in a 240-pin DDR2 DIMM is closer toward the center of the module.

Q:The Crucial system scan recommended the
A:Both memory kits are guaranteed to be compatible with this system. The PC2-6400 speed memory is the faster of the two kits so I would recommend going for this kit.
Q:Is this product the same as this
A:Yes, the 2GB kit listed on our site against the Inspiron 530 comprises of 2 x CT12864AA800.
Q:Hello I have dell vostro 410 3 gigabytes of ram 2x1Gigs plus 2x512meg... Replacing the 2x512 meg units with your memeory and my question is: Would the current memory speed of 800mhz stay the same or will it lower down to 667mhz? with what you have to offer.
A:When memory speeds are mixed, all memory modules will run at the same speed which will be speed of the slowest memory modules installed in the system.
