Just bought a Dell Vostro 260 MT and looking to upgrade in RAM department. Just looking for something that's compatible and not unreasonably expensive. Thanks.

Hello sgiblin;

Looks like it uses PC3-10666 memory. found some at newegg.com. you can check it out here. You should have 4 slots and supports up to 8gb of ram. So plenty to choose from.

The motherboard may support 8GB of RAM, but unless it is a 64-bit operating system it will only recognize between 3GB to 3.5GB of RAM.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
