What ram can a stock dell 780 optiplex use I know it’s Ddr3 but what ghz is to be used .

Warlock gave you the correct tech spec sheet to download about the Dell 780 Otiplex.

Basically you are looking for non-ECC dual channel 1066MHz or 1333MHz. Depending which model version you have will base upon the maximum amount of RAM. The MT/DT/SFF supports a max amount of 16GB RAM while USFF supports a max amount of 8GB RAM.

Something to keep in mind, but you might need to update your BIOS to A15 when upgrading the RAM. Or you may not at all. Though you can check each BIOS update for what the changes were: A12, A13, A14.

Again, required or not sometimes it helps with compatibility issues when installing new components such as RAM between processors etc. Of course it's not always required if the upgrade works out!

Crucial has a compatibility tool on their website, if you're interested in buying memory from them.
