I'm an owner of a Dell Studio XPS 435MT and I wanted to update RAM. During regular web/email browsing my RAM meter is at 40-50%, and when I play BF3 (ultra) it goes all the way up to 97%, the FPS is around 60-70, but I get a little lag, which I suspect is due to the limited ram.
I know that my OS supports up to 16GB of RAM, and there are various opinions out there how much RAM is enough, I have the following questions to the community:
Okay thanks, before I proceed with the order (G.SKILL) I noticed from other forums that the RAM runs at 1066 Mhz. And looks like I'm ordering 1600's. I'm okay if the system automatically underclocks the RAM, but just want to make sure that it won't crash and burn my system.
It won't crash and burn your pc lol no worries!

Thanks to everyone! It worked! I ended up keeping 16GB worth of RAM vs 4GB previously. Some say it's totally useless, but I keep 2 monitors and often do a good amount of projects on my PC. The GSKILL looks good in my case, and my restart/logoff/loading times have improved by a large margin!
