The Dell OptiPlex GX620 mini-tower model does support up to 4096 MB(4 GB) of RAM.

It uses 240-pin DDR2 PC2-4200 (533 MHz) or DDR2 PC2-5300 (667 MHz) modules.

You didn't advise what the 7-character "service tag number" on the sticker is, so I don't know at this point if yours is the 533 MHz or 667 MHz frontside bus model.

Since yours already has DDR2 PC2-4200 modules in it, I'm going to assume it's the 533 MHz frontside bus model.

It's the same. It just goes by a different designation.
