Is this RAM "Dell compatible"?

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

My friend has a Dimension 2400 (about a year old) but only has 128mb of
memory. Would he be able to pick up this ram so I can put it into his
system? It's a 256 stick, 184 pin, pc2700 ddr from a company called "PNY".

    yes you can as long as the other stick of memory is pc2700. 2400 also uses
    pc3200.. if you look at the other memory stick inside the computer, example. it
    should say maybe something like samsung pc2700.
    other then that its easy to do :)

    I'm not aware of any Dimension 2400 models that came with pc3200. They've
    never had faster than a 533 bus.

    Mine came with PC2700. I'm pretty sure it requires CL2.5.

    Agreed Tom and for the OP, the RAM will run at the speed of the slowest RAM
    you have installed. In a 2400 there really is no reason to install PC3200.
    PC 2700 would be fine and will probably be the same RAM speed installed from
    the factory. And yes I have heard of PNY and never heard of any complaints
    using that make RAM.

    Thanks for your reply. The other stick of memory HAS to be 2700? If it's
    2100, won't the new 2700 that I put in just run slower?

    someone correct me if im wrong. yes it will run slower if you mix pc2100 and
    pc2700. thats why you should match them together instead of mixing. there is
    also ram out there thats pc2700 but can be reversed the other way for pc2100

    well a 2400 can use pc3200 crucial even says lol

    "Can use" is much different than "came with".

    The 2400 is likely running a Celeron (400mhz FSB) so even if the RAM works,
    it will only run at 266mhz.......just a heads up.

    What makes you say it is 'likely a Celeron'? My 2400 is a P4-2.8.

    Most I've seen are value systems with the Celeron processors, though as you
    point out, the P4 is available.

    Hence why I used the qualifier "likely".
