Dell E521 Memory upgrade
Hello there :D:

Ok, at work we have a spare Dell machine which is a few years old, we are gonna upgrade it and are using it for connecting to a HD TV to play racing Sims, anyway I want to upgrade to some 2x 2gb sticks and want to make sure they are compatible

It is a Dell E521, Here are the board details :

Dell 0ct103 A03 (Nforce 410/430 mcp)

I am also upgrading the CPU to an X2 5600 (Windsor)

Machine is running Vista (32), is 64 better or?

Can you tell me will the following ram work ok with the board and which do you think would suit best, many thanks in advance

Corsair 4Gb DHX XMS2 (2x2Gb) DDR2 PC2-6400C4DHX Twin

Corsair 4GB DHX XMS2 (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C5DHX TwinX C5

Corsair 4GB Kit XMS2 (2x2GB) DDR2 TWIN2X4096 - 6400-C5

Corsair XMS2 4GB 8500MHz TWIN2X4096-8500C5 (2x 2GB Kit)

Is it a Corsair thing or just a Dell thing, what I mean is that will no 2gb sticks work on this board?

Thanks again

2 GB sticks will not work on that board. This is stated both on the link above as well on Dell's website. Most OEM systems don't work well (if at all) with non-JEDEC spec'd memory.

Ok ok, so one more question before I order.

So the best choice for the Dell board would be 4x 1gb of VS2GBKITB533D2

2 sets of these :

Many thanks
