it currently has 2 256 MB DDR2 PC2-4200 (266 Mhz). Said it is setup for dual channel, but if I buy a single 512 MB memory card and use it along with the current configuration , how much of a performance drop am I going to get? I don't want to shell out a lot for 2 256 chips or 2 512's for dual channel capability, but if it is that big of a deal, I guess I will.
I know what kind it takes as in the kind (either PC2-4200 or PC2-3200) and I know if I use the PC2-3200 it will use that speed.
Just trying to save a few dollars for more bang for my dell buck. yes, 2 gigs of RAM with this computer would be great but cant afford so one gig would be ok for me, as I only run web browsers, Yahoo and MSN messenger, Windows Media Player 11 and AVG Antivirus.
3.0 Ghz with HT trchnology
512 DDr2 PC23200 Ram
128 Mb Ati PCI E graphics card
80 GB Seagate SATA hard drive
DVD-RW and CD-Rom
Just need tom know if its ok to use the current 2 256's and 1 512 module.
