Here we have two current WorkStation models, both from the same family - the one on the left with RDIMM memory standard, and the one on the right with UDIMM memory standard. When you try to add memory options, the Configurator intelligence knows that the UDIMM model should only be shown UDIMM options. Similarly with the RDIMM model, only RDIMM options. But what happens if you delete the standard memory, as we have done to both systems below ? To remove a standard component, we double-click on the item, then on Configuration-->Remove Marked Parts. If there are two or more memory modules standard, all will have to be removed, one at a time.

Once we delete the standard memory from either system unit, this is what the memory option list looks like now, . Notice we can choose either type of memory. But if we choose one, the other type of memory will vanish from the list - you can have one type or the other on this family, but the Configurator will not let you mix them. Note too the inclusion of the second processor option, copied from Extras into the Memory menu. This family has two processor sockets, and you cannot fill the memory sockets beyond the half-way point without adding the second, matching processor. Another way the Configurator helps you avoid errors and improve productivity.
