I went to the Corsair web site and keyed in "Dell Studion Slimline 540S", and it responded with maximum memory = 4slots x 2GB = 8GB DDR2.
The OS I am using is 64 bit Vista Home Premium and 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04.
My questions are:
Is it true that I could use DDR3 rather than DDR2 memory?
Would the 240-pin slots be able to support 4 x 4GB DDR3 sticks?
Would the 240-pin slots be able to support 4 x 8GB DDR3 sticks?
Would the 250W PSU buckle under 4 x 4GB DDR3 sticks? I currently do not have any additional cards installed. What about 4 x 8GB DDR3?
Does any of the 4 x 4GB or 4 x 8GB DDR3 require mother board BIOS upgrade?
