Memory comes in a wide assortment of flavors and speeds, and knowing what to buy sometimes may be difficult. And without having to crack open your case, you can use a handy software tool that will show you what you need.
I had completely forgotten about a handy scanner tool from Crucial until I received an an from the company today. The scanner tool looks at your computer system, determines how many open slots are available, sees how much RAM your system will support, and then makes recommendations to you of what to buy.
What is also nice about this tool is that you can print out the results and buy RAM from another vendor or source knowing you will purchase the correct amount and speed for your system.
I used Crucial’s scanner on my Gateway laptop and it correctly identified my configuration and exactly the type of RAM I needed. I then did a comparison with other vendors and found Crucial ‘s pricing to be fair – and, at the time, it was offering free shipping when I ordered.
So give it a try and see what you think.
Crucial Memory Advisor - it’s located to the right of the main screen – “SCAN MY SYSTEM.”
