hi....before scrapping my hp 11 year old hp pavillion slimline, i removed the two ram modules. they are marked as 2GB 2Rx8 PC2-6400U-666-12-E3 and look very clean. i now have a hp elite 8000 compact desktop, 2.8 GHZ, intelE7400, core 2 duo, 320 gb hdd. the question i have is......can i safely add those two ram sticks to this elite 8000 to upgrade the ram from 4GB to 8GB?
any advice on this would be greatly appreciated..............thanks!!

Those memory chips won't work in the 8000 Elite because the 8000 Elite uses DDR3 memory which runs at a different voltage, and the slot is cut in a different place to prevent installing the wrong voltage memory in the PC.
Your used chips would work in a dc7800 or dc7900 but not the 8000 Elite.
If you want to upgrade the memory in your 8000 Elite, you can go with 4 x 4 GB for a total of 16 GB.
I went with 4 of these in my 8000 Elite.
