Hello, I have a Small Form Factor Optiplex 790 that has a i3-2120, 3GB of DDR3 @ 1333, and a 250GB HDD.

So, I'm wanting to turn this into a little mobile gaming PC and I already got a Zotac GTX 1050 ti low profile card in it and working. I'm going to also upgrade the i3 to a i7-2600, and the 250GB HDD to a Seagate Firecuda 2TB.

As for the ram, I'm wanting to max it out with 16GB but I'm not sure what ram will work with it exactly. I've seen a lot of post where people are having issues with some ram not working when all 4 dim slots are filled, while others have no issues. I know that it will only run at 1333MHz so their is no reason for me to buy anyrhing faster, but when browsing NewEgg, they have a few different types. I'm seeing PC3L 10600, PC3 8500, PC3 10666, PC3 10660, and PC3 10600. Which version is the correct version of 1333MHz to use?

Also if you know of any ram that is certified to work with it, then you can just link that too.

But yeah, either way, my main question is what ram will work in my machine without any issues and give me a max capacity of 16GB (4 × 4GB).

Thanks!

Best thing to do is to look up the manual for the Dell. They all should have a service Tag sticker and it will have a Tag # that you plug in here http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04 which should help you to get to the manual.
In there it will tell you max ram what ram it supports etc...
But I think any standard DDR3 1600/1333 should work. I used both in 790's with no problems.
