My friend has an old Dell Optiplex GX620 with only 512mb of RAM in it. I was wondering if this (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148236) will work in it. I don't wanna just rush in and throw 2gb of RAM on a motherboard that can't handle it cause he can't afford a new one. Thank you for any responses.
According to the specs of the machine, it will work. The board will require DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM.
Yes, agreed, PC2-5300 or faster DDR2 will work, up to 2Gb DIMMS. Larger modules (4Gb) may be seen and addressed as 2Gb or not seen altogether depending on the BIOS version.
thanks, guys. This helped a lot
wow, the guy that used to work on my friend's pc said that 2 GB would fry the mobo..... and that 512 mb is fine. He must be trying to milk him for every dollar possible
