Hello,

I'm looking to buy some ram for my brother in law for christmas, but i'm not sure if the ram I'm looking into purchasing is compatible with his system. Right now he's using PC3 - 10600 ram and I'm looking into getting him PC3 - 12800 ( this is the specific ram : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... )

Thanks for your help in advance!

Without knowing his system it is hard to tell but it is likely that it will work. If you are looking to speed up his system there is little benefit from just increasing ram speed.

It's a dell, about 2 years old. It has a dual core processor running at about 2.4 ghz with 2gb ram currently. Not sure of the exact model number of the computer, but those are a rough estimate of the specs. We were looking at getting him the 8 gigs of ram and upgrading his os from 32 bit to 64 bit windows. Last christmas we got him a graphics card, and thought that ram would be next logical step in improving his gaming capabilities.

Thanks for your reply.

Yep swapping out the ram should work.
