My Inspiron 1501 shows that it has 896 MB of RAM. Their is 1 GB of memory installed in this laptop. Therefore, I assume (please correct me if I am wrong) that 128 MB of system memory is being allocated to the ATI Radeon Press 1150 graphics card?
If this is correct do you beleive that I will get a significant inprovement in performace increase in say (Battlefield 2 and Battlefied 2142) by upgrading my memory to 2 GB of memory and allocating 256 MB of memory to the graphics card?
Lastly, do you know if I install the following memory in my Inspiron 1501 that it will work as 667 MHz memory or will it be utilized at the 533 MHz level?
