So, I've been reading some the the latest releases re USB 3.0 and the question is: does it make sense to convert older machines? On the surface, it appears to - any thoughts?

Also, is "crucial" or "critical" .com the best on line site to buy RAM upgrades for a DELL Dimension 4700?

Thanks

You can't "convert" a computer to USB 3.0. You'd have to install an expansion card with USB 3.0 ports, and then only those ports would run at that speed. Whether or not you need it depends on if you have USB 3.0 storage devices and need the extra speed.

The Dell Dimension 4700 is pretty darn old, and I'm not sure it would even support USB 3.0. Crucial.com sells RAM. I don't know what critical.com is. I wouldn't waste too much money on a computer that old. New desktops are cheap.

Thanks for the heads-up. Your right the Dell is to old - I guess USB 3.0 will be the standard by mid-year.
