I need to upgrade the ram of my dell latitude d510 laptop.....pls help

hi
i need to upgrade the ram of my dell latitude d510 laptop
according to crucial.com i should buy
http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=65008E58A5CA7304

Module Size: 1GB
Package: 200-pin SODIMM
Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300
Specs: DDR2 PC2-5300 • CL=5 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-667 • 1.8V • 128Meg x 64 •

i did some online search and foundTranscend 1gbJM667QSU-1G(i plan to get 2 of these to run in dual channel mode)
http://www.flipkart.com/transcend-ddr2-667-pc2-5300-ddr2-1-gb-laptop-ram-jm667qsu-1g/p/itmd2rypqspkwzgz

DDR2-667/PC2-5300
SO-DIMM Memory Module
200-pin Configuration
3-3-3 CAS Latency
Unbuffered
166 MHz Memory Clock Speed
8 x 128 MB DRAM Structure
Specified Voltage: 1.8 V
Error Check: Non-ECC


now the only diffrence i see between the two is the DRAM structure 128Meg x 64 v / s 8 x 128 MB.and also i am a little confused with
166 MHz Memory Clock Speed of the transcend.


should i go for the transcend ram?? does the DRAM structure make any diffrence??will it be compatible to my laptop??
pls help....

  1. The specs of the Transcend is written incorrectly with respect to the speed. The baseclock of 667mhz DDR2 is 333.33 mhz.

    The 3-3-3 latencies also seem wrong.

    Based on the fact they can't get their specs right, go with Crucial.
  2. You should be able to pick and choose from any in this list:

    You can put in 2 sticks of 1GB to a max of 2GB in your laptop.

    this is the manual for transcend JM667QSU-1G and gives full details about it, read the very first line it says
    "The JM667QSU-1G is a 128M x 64bits DDR2-667 SO-DIMM. The JM667QSU-1G consists of 8pcs 128Mx8 bits DDR2 SDRAMs..........."
