    You could also go to Dell's website, key in your service tag number and find out everything about the PC when it was shipped ;)

    Everest should tell you what's installed. Under motherboard click on SPD.

    Funny Crucial shows 2700 and 3200 and Dell shows 2100 and 2700...I have seen that before.

    I've seen those kind of differences also, but Everest will tell him what he has installed.
