I have some HP SFF computers.. 2 dc7700's and 2 dc7800's, they are all rocking on Windows XP SP3
Specs on the dc7800 are as follows:(copied from BIOS)
Processor Type: Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 @2.33GHz
Process Speed: 2333/1333 <-- anyone know what that means?
Memory Size: 1024 MB DDR2/667 MHz/Dual Channel 512MB x2
They are beginning to show their age.. and so I was thinking about buying more RAM to speed things up.. Here is where my questions come..
1. I believe 4GB is probably the max this system can hold right, can anyone confirm this?
2. If I jumped to 4GB RAM, would it be more benificial on XP or on Win 7? i.e. which OS would I realize/utilize the faster speed on?
3. Per HP's website, it supports to kinds of RAM [PC2-5300 (DDR2-667 MHz) and PC2-6400 (DDR2-800 MHz) Non-ECC DIMM Memory]
What should I get, the PC2-5300 or would I realize faster speeds with the PC2-6400?
4. Best/Cheapest Place to get RAM based on the answer to #3?
I looked up the Win 7 requirements and it appears that my dc7800 would be able to run it with no issues.. Do yall forsee any issues or would I be best off just upping the RAM on XP SP3?
Thank You all in advance!
