by Matt_Dargan / March 29, 2013 7:59 AM PDT

I want to know if my Dell XPS 410 will support Kingston's KHX6400D2B1/1G ram?

If not can u give me a different type of ram that would work good for my computer. Thank for the help.

Go to & use their tool

Go to and use their tool. It will tell you what kind of RAM you need, how much you can add, and give you several options. You could also ask Dell, but the Crucial tool is probably preferable.

Key word>should.
The kingston ram meets the specs your machine supports.
I'm sure your aware of this thing called dual channel and how it can get a little fussy if you mix ram sticks.

If you insist on Kingston ...

you might make use of their Memory Search (similar to what Crucial offers)

The system specific Kingston RAM for your Dell is Kingston ktd-dm8400c6/1g which is CL6 while KHX6400D2B1/1G is CL5

It should work but it would be advisable to have all RAM the same - don't mix it.
