What desktop memory do i have?

Was wondering if anyone knows how to check what RAM my desktop PC takes without taking it apart. Is there a way to check whether its DDR or DDR2 by using the computer functions?

You can download a program called 'Everest' and it will show you the components inside your PC.

Install a free program from Sisoft http://www.sisoftware.net/

Download the lite version of XII SP1

For your specific question see http://www.sisoftware.net/index.html?dir=qa&location=det_mem&langx=en&a=

Very useful to have!

Thanks guys, have used crucial website and let me know my pc requires DDR. I would of thought DDR2 as this is more widely used. I think?

It really depends on how old your machine is, if it's a couple of years old, it's unlikely to be DDR2...

If none of those work, Sisoft SANDRA (google it) will do what you need :)

Do you know what processor you have? Although that's not definite it can be a big help.

Personally I like CPU-Z for identifying memory, it's very small, simple and runs without installing yet tells you exactly what you need.

belarc is a good programme - it shows your hardware, but it also shows your software and updates installed (good for windows)

go on to crucial memory site and it should tell you (99% on there anyway)
