I presume you mean Studio XPS 9000.

The manual for the Studio XPS 9000 says 1066-MHz DDR3 RAM, but I see that crucial.com is offering 1600-MHz DDR3 RAM for this model. They guarantee it will work or they take it back.

Keep in mind that even if you install 1600 MHz RAM, the system will run at the speed of the slowest RAM that's installed. So if you mix 1600 with1066, it will all run at 1066 MHz.
