I just purchased (don't worry I didn't spend much money!) an old Dell Optiplex GX 240.
Yeah, I typed GX 240.
I'm just going to use it to play around with. First thing I did was open the case and it was/is clean inside.
Powered it up, seemed to boot pretty quickly but first thing I noticed is that I think I could use some extra RAM.
I don't believe there have been any hardware changes on this thing and currently it looks like this:
XP Service Pack 3
Intel Pentium 4 CPU 1.70Ghz with a whopping 256 MB of RAM.
Did some searching around the Net last night and it appears that this thing can't really handle/use more than 1GB of RAM anyway, but I'll assume it will make a difference, so...
I found this and was wondering if someone could tell me if they think it will work.
I'm always a little overwhelmed when I try to read the cpu-z results but if you think you need them I would be glad to post them or any other specs you might want and/or need.
I think this machine has two slots and I think the linked ebay item might work...but, I thought I'd ask the experts first.
As always I appreciate any and all feedback.
