  1. my friend has a dell dimension e521, and he wants to upgrade his RAM. but he doesn't know if a particular brand fits. he wants to fit it with some dual 2 gig Corsair Ram cards.

    does his dell support that kind of card? if it doesn't, what will fit?

    Any DDR2 non-ECC Unbuffered memory can be used. For best results use the same make, speed and technology DDR2 modules. You have 4 DDR2 memory slots in that model Dell

    I have an E521 and added ram from here. As long as you scan your system with their on-line memory scanner it's garanteed to work.

    Low density only. High density isn't compatible.
