Default Re: old dell laptop gets a awesome upgrade, please help.

SO your looking to get 2 hard drives for the Acer and Dell and some ram for the Dell? That's doable but we need to know what kind of Dell it is or what kind of ram it takes.

- AMD FX8320 @ 4.2Ghz - ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer - G.Skill Ripjaws X 8gb -
- Asus Strix GTX 970 - Corsair Neutron GTX - Corsair TX 750 -
- Cooler Master HAF XB - Corsair H105 -
- Asus VG248QE - Corsair M60 & K90 -

Ditto, we need to know your model before we can say if it will work.

Yes, yes. We need to know the model number of your Dell to tell you any further. There are a number different types of RAM. We can't say what will work or not.
