GX280 and GX520 memory compatibility

Jump to solution

 

 Hello,

 

Can you please tell me  if those computers use the same memory sticks – somehow dell reps denies that

 

I asked if   1 GB Memory Module for Dell OptiPlex GX280 Desktop Mini-Tower Small Form Factor (A0743606)  will work on GX520  and got “NO” for a answer

 

But based on specs this memory should work on GX520 as well, right? Anybody tried?

 

Thank you so much
