RAM Upgrade

by ambassadorhawg / March 21, 2012 12:45 PM PDT

I'd like to add more RAM to my Dell Inspiron 570 desktop which is 64 bit. It originally came with 4 GB and I'd like to double that. The OEM chips are Samsung (2X2GB) DDR3, SDRAM, 1066mhz, DIMM, 2Rx8, PC3, 8500U, 1.5V.

I haven't got much of a clue what most of that means but I am having a hard time finding those exact chips to buy as a set to compliment my existing chips. I see lots of other Samsung 2GB, 1066mhz DDR3 chips but with slightly different figures than my OEM chips have. Dell support suggests that I add a set of their 2GB 1333mhz chips.

My understanding is that a 64 bit system needs a minimum of 4GB of RAM just to function so there's got to be room for speed improvent here. I'm not a big video watcher but I do play so simple games and I often have multiple windows and tabs open at once.

Please help...

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
