    Intel G41 Express Spec Conflict


      I have a Optiplex 380 and a Vostro 230.

      Both have the same G41 Express chip set, but the Vostro specs say that the max ram is 4GB and the Optiplex specs say the max is 8GB.

      So which is the correct specs because I also want to put the 3GHZ Quad into the optiplex 380 that I was planning to put into the Vostro.

      Please guys let me know what are the ram and processor maximum configurations for both machines.

      Thank You

          Please bear in mind that memory capacity depends on the motherboard BIOS and the computer manufacturer, in your case, Dell. The same statement applies for processor compatibility if you are looking for processor upgrade on Dell or OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) you need to refer to your computer manual or contacting Dell directly for instructions.
