I own an Alienware x51 not sure which revision but, it has an intel core i3-3220, a GT 640, and 6gb of ddr3 ram. Now I want to upgrade a little since it isn't able to run some games due to lack of ram and graphics horsepower. So I'm getting a GTX 1050 and want 8gb of ram but I'm not sure what specifications the ram must be e.g 1600mhz or 800 and 240pin or 288. Any help would be great

I believe you have R1 version with 6GB DDR3-1600 RAM. You could also check in the BIOS or just take the ram out that is in there now and look at the specs on the sticker.
