None of the Dell Gx150 machines that were donated meet these specs.
According to Dell documentation, they can only accommodate 512 MB of RAM.
That said, I've never tried putting more in these machines, so they may
unofficially accept more.
I do not know the status of other machines at the lab, but Kami might.
Also, please note the although there is a spare PCI slot available, these
machines are "small form factor" and require a half-height aka
low-profile PCI card.
