I am getting a DELL DIMENSION 8300 and want to upgrade with an extra 512MB of ram asap but I have to order either parity or non parity. Anyone got a DIMENSION and can tell me they correct type or can it vary from PC to PC?

Get aida32 to id the mobo and memory type; then go to crucial.com/uk and tell it the machine. That will give you the options.

A new system? If that be the case you may be better checking your speck and see whats on offer with Dell for matching. (if buying new)


Dual Channel 400MHz DDR Memory

1024MB Dual Channel DDR 400 (4x256MB) (Includes 256MB Free) (+£100)

Thanks all but now a little confused! I know it will have 512mb(2X256) of Dual Channel 400MHz DDR Memory.

Does this mean I can only add 2 x 256 and not 1 x 512 or 2 x 512. I seem to remember the slots have to have the same amounts of memory. I just want to fill it up and forget about it for another 5 years.

go to your link,as you will see in the list when you click on the "learn more,right side of page"


You could at the same time order 2x256 =£75 or

2x 516 or 2x ? depends on what ,or how much ram you want and can afford.

"Depends if your having a new system."

As I am still awaiting my PC I will not order any memory in anticipation because knowing my luck I will end up with the wrong type. Will post back once resolved.
