  1. Hi guy I was about to upgrade my Dell XPS 410 and just want to know if this stuff will work. It still has the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo

    The PSU that I think will work best for me is:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005
    CORSAIR Enthusiast Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V

    But I'm not sure about the Memory I was looking at
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277&cm_re=ripjaws_4gb-_-20-231-277-_-Product&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3675192&SID=skim951X490024Xc9f5e97c8a2c407bce0c6355307ff320
    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    But I don't know If it will work in my PC because it said SDRAM and everything I see on my PC doesn't say anything about SDRAM and I also found that I should use 1.8 volts this is lower at 1.5 volt I'm guessing that would be ok because its lower.

    Thanks for the help

    The XPS 410 uses DDR2 and not DDR3, at least according to the manual on Dell's website. If you want to confirm this, run CPU-Z and see what's currently installed. That power supply is fine assuming there's enough room in the Dell case for it. Why are you swapping the PSU? Is the old one broken or are you going to upgrade the video card?

    yea the PSU may not be working but for upgrades that I will be making I want to have a better PSU right now I have the Geforce GT220 and the min power supply is 375 and thats what the PSU is that I got in there now. I do have a post in Forum: Windows BSOD, Freezing, Restarting about whats going on.
    ill check on the DDR2 but I do think you are right I guess I have to find a other 1. Is that all I need to look for is that it is a DDR2?
