great, would i be able to transfer my 4x 1g cards from my dell 545s as this would allow me to upgrade the dell to 8g and get more out of it since it already runs 64 bit, and save some $$$

This will only work if the RAM sticks are compatible. The specifications for the DELL are here;

    • up to 8GB1 Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 800Mhz - 4 DIMMS

Specs on that motherboard,

how much ram-ms7204.png

Up to 4 GB at 667 MHz. If the Dell has 800 MHz then it should work in that board, it will just downclock it to 667 MHz.

Yes you can use just the one slot if you wish, but depending on the system you may get better performance if you use both slots (Dual Channel)
