RAM recommendation for a Dell 650i setup?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My brother just got this system:

http://www.dell.com/content/products...=19&l=en&s=dhs

The system rates pretty well in the Vista Performance whatever ranking, having everything register as 5.9 on the 6 point system EXCEPT the RAM. It is 4GB of DDR2 800 so it seems like it should be OK, but it registers as 4.8 / 6. Can stock RAM, even if it is DDR2 800, be that much worse than the Crucial / GSkill stuff? Also, is it possible that Dell messed up and put in the DDR2 667 sticks? If so, what program do you guys use to check that? If not, think it is worth upgrading to the good stuff? If yes, which do you recommend for this setup?

Happy to drop rep for the help. Appreciate it.

everything looks good i dont see why you would upgrade any more it should play every game-app you could through at it

and use cpu z to check the ram when you open cpuz up go to memory and if the ram you have is
ddr2 800 the dram frequency should say 400 http://www.cpuid.com/download/cpuz_146.zip
