I own a Dell Optiplex GX260, and my computer started acting up a few days ago, not wanting to boot to BIOS. So I played around and figured out that one of my RAM sticks went bad (I had 2x 512 DDR - PC2100).
So, I decided that this would be a good time to upgrade my RAM and started looking to what's compatible with my motherboard.
Now, when I went to Dell's website and looked for RAM that's compatible, it showed a Dell memory with the following specs: DDR PC3200 - NON-ECC Unbuffered.
This RAM is fairly expensive in Europe... or should I say I can find other sticks much cheaper. If I find a different RAM with the same specs, will it be compatible?
Also, would memory with frequency of PC2700 work as well? Again, logically, it's in the frequency range between the old (PC2100) and the new (PC3200).
