Hi, I'm thinking of upgrading the RAM for my Inspiron 8500 notebook. I
currently have 2 x 256 MB of 266-MHz DDR SDRAM. I can get 512 MB and 1
GB DDR2 RAM - is this compatible with my system? It is also sold in a
range of MHz values, what does this actually mean?


All the best,

Re: RAM Types for Upgrade

No ... DDR and DDR2 are totally different and non-interchangeable.  Any
given system takes one or the other, not both.
