Answers :

Dell Optiplex 760 Vista
Max CPU Intel Q9550
Largest HDD Shipped 1TB (Will likely Support 2TB)

Optiplex GX260
Max Intel Northwood 2.53 GHz - 533
Largest HDD Shipped was 200GB (Will likely support 500GB)

Dell Dimension XPS D300
Max CPU 333 Pentium II
Max RAM 384MB
Largest HDD Shipped 16GB (Will likely Support up to 80GB)

Dell Dimension XPS M
Max CPU 166S
Max RAM 64 MB
Largest HDD Shipped 4.3 GB (Max HDD likely 20GB)

1) Dell Optiplex GX260:

A) Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 2GB's.
There are 2 ram slots.

EACH ram slot has a maximum amount of 1GB

Ram memory used, is either DDR Sdram that operates at 200MegaHertz, or 266MHz.

(PC1600 and PC2100 respectively)

B) Harddrive limit is 137GB. Harddrive style is IDE.
(Also known as PATA)

HOWEVER, (Not shouting), the computer can be fooled into 'thinking' there is a single 125GB harddrive, and you can use a 500GB harddrive.

To clarify, using a Western Digital harddrive for an example. The software that comes with WD harddrives, has a partitioning tool that you can access.

This partition manager divides a 500GB harddrive into 4 partitions, of 125GB's each.

Computer sees a 500GB harddrive as being just one 125GB harddrive, which is below the 137GB limit.

(Maximum allowable partitions on a harddrive is 4)

Dell Optiplex GX260 specifications:

2a) Dell Optiplex 760 Ultra Small Form Factor:

A) Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 4GB's.
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 2GB's.
There are 2 ram slots.

With a Vista 64bit operating system, the full 4GB's will be recognized.

With a 32bit Vista operating system, only 3.2GB to 3.5GB will be recognized.

Uses DDR2 Sdram at either 800MHz, or 1066MHz.
(PC2-6400 and PC2-8500 respectively)

B) Uses SATA harddrives. Sky is the limit, and is only governed by the users budget.
(Up to 1TB)

You can also use external harddrives for any of the Dell models listed on this page, to increase your storage capacity.
(Plus Flashdrives. Also referred to as Flash Memory Drives, Thumbdrives, and USB memory stick, to name a few)

2b) Dell Optiplex 760 Desktop, Mini-Tower, and Small Form Factor:

A) Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 8GB's.
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 2GB.
There are 4 ram slots.

Uses DDR2 Sdram at either 800MHz, or 1066MHz.
(PC2-6400 and PC2-8500 respectively)

B) Uses SATA harddrives. Sky is the limit.

3) Dell Dimension XPS D300:

A) Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 384MB.
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 128MB.
There are 3 ram slots.

Uses SDR Sdram, (Commonly just referred to as Sdram), type ram memory.
Operates at 66MHz. (PC66)

It Should be able to use PC100, and MAY be able to use PC133 ram memory.

(This is governed by a number of factors for the last two stated. PC100 and PC133.

Depends on the CAS Latency, and Voltage. Also may depend on the Chip Configuration, and I believe only Non-ECC, unbuffered ram can be used.

CL should be 2.5
Ram timings - 2-2-2-5
Voltage - 3.3 Volts)

B) Harddrive limitation? Whatever came in it, is what I would stick with. (10GB? 20GB?)

Just my observation.


4) Dell Dimension XPS M166S:

A) Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 64MB.
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 32MB.
There are 2 ram slots.

Uses SDR Sdram ram memory. Operates at 66MHz.

B) Harddrive limitations:
With all due respect, same as above for number 3.
