A long time ago I had thought about upgrading my memory for my laptop, and then I forgot about it, but now I want to give it a go and upgrade. I did some significant research about what to get, but in the end I still find myself unsure about what to get that would be best and optimized for my system. I will list what I think are relevant specs about my system to help you guys help me...
I have a Dell XPS 1210 Laptop.
Currently i have 1 GB of memory in there, I believe its 2x512mb modules, and according to the DELL website, max upgradable memory is 4GB (4096mb), ie. 2x2gb modules.
My system has the Intel Core Duo T2300 1.66 processor, so i guess that's two 1.66 ghz processors
according to system information, its called a x86 Family 6 Model 14 Stepping 8 GenuineIntel ~1664Mhz
I don't know what my Bus speed is for my processor(s) According to one post i read, determining this helps in finding out what memory to get...
I know that my laptop takes 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 memory from looking at the optional memory upgrades on the dell website, but what I am not sure about is the speed, ie. PC4200, PC5400, PC6400, or PC8000, and the cas latency.
On newegg.com, where i have been shopping around looking at what is available, the differences in memory seem to be mostly in cas latency, or timing, and the speeds of which i mentioned before.
Can anyone help me figure out what memory would be best for my system? For the most part my laptop is an internet, word processing, movie watching, music listening, photoshop using pc. I used to play lots of games, but not much nowadays because i have my 360....but i am looking forward to playing starcraft 2 when it is released.
If anyone who can help needs any more info about my system, I will do my best to get it to you can help me help myself!
Thanks in advance
