    I have a 4 yr old Dell Dimension E510 with only the 512 memory it came with. The computer is painfully slow while playing online games and sometimes just surfing in general. I've done the disk clean-up, degragmentor, increased virtual memory, deleted cookies and all, and it's still slow. Only thing left I could think of is to install more memory.

    I bought a PNY 2 x1 GB DDR2 PC2-5300 set from Staples today but before I open in, can anyone confirm that it's compatible with my computer and if it will even help?

    thanks!!!!

    Looks perfect, Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 2GB per slot.*

    Thats dual channel 2GB. It should make things run much better.
