According to the Crucial System Scanner report, your Dell Dimension 4600 desktop currently has a 256 MB DDR PC2700 module in 2 slots and has 2 empty slots.

You have these options:

Buy 2 - 256 MB DDR PC2700 modules.

http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartsp...92ECA9A5CA7304

This would increase the amount of RAM to 1024 MB(1 GB)
(256 MB X 4)

Buy 2 - 512 MB DDR PC2700 modules.

http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartsp...DCCDE3A5CA7304

This would increase the amount of RAM to 1536 MB(1.5 GB)
(256 MB X 2, 512 MB X 2)

Buy 2 - 1 GB DDR PC2700 modules.

http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartsp...BF832DA5CA7304

This would increase the amount of RAM to 2560 MB(2.5 GB)
(256 MB X 2, 1 GB X 2)

I don't need the fastest machine in the world but don't want the pain of what I have now. Looks like either 2 512 MB or 2 1 GIG. What would you recommend? Looks like I would leave the present memory in place, correct?

Buying 2 - 512 MB modules or 2 - 1 GB modules is your choice.

Follow the install instructions here carefully.

You want to install the larger capacity modules in slots 1 and 2 and the smaller capacity modules in slots 3 and 4.

Make sure all 4 modules are fully inserted in their slots and that the locking levers are fully up and in the side notches.

Not to confuse things but If I understand correctly the install diagram shows the first pair of slots to be 1 & 3 and the second pair to be 2 & 4. If I purchase 2 - 1 GB and if I'm interpreting what your saying correctly I should take out the current memory and install in slots 2 & 4 and install the new 2- 1 GB memory in slots 1 and 3.

As you can see in the diagram that captainron276 submitted, the 4 slots are color-coded, so slots #1 and #2 are actually the 1st and 3rd slots.

Those are the slots that you want to install the larger capacity modules.

Pairs in the same coloured slots, slowest (ie higher cas) in 1&3 fastest in 2&4.
This is because the mobo determines memory speed from the first stick it detects and you need to run it at the speed of the slowest.

So would I be correct by installing the new larger capacity memory in Dim m 1 & Dim m 2? And move the old 2 - 256 memory sticks to Dim m 3 & Dim m 4. ?

Just received the memory upgrade and getting ready to install. What is the most simple and easiest method to ground oneself without using a bracelet or whatever they're called? I don't have a lot of tools for this.

Be sure not to be wearing any jewelry. Unplug the computer and disconnect from power source. Touch a metal side of your case to ground you and then proceed with your memory install.
