Hello everyone! I am about to upgrade my computer, and I want to double check if this type of ram supports my computer, I have provided some pictures on the RAM and my computer info. I am not really good at this type of computer stuff.

It's always best to fall back on the manufacture system specs as to the type of memory and speed of memory is supported by your particular motherboard.


It's true that most ram is backward compatible and may work but that isn't always the case.


Somewhere on your desktop computer is a model number and system tag go to the manufactures website and see what support information is available about the type of memory that your desktop computer supports.

I agree with the advice you've received.   I have used the Crucial System Scanner to determine compatible memory type, maximum capacity for the system, and how many slots I have and what memory they have in them, if any.


It has never failed me.  You do not, of course, have to buy Crucial brand memory.
