    My brother has a Dell 2400 with 128MB of ram and he wants to upgrade it. I went to the Dell website and went to upgrade. They gave me the RAM chip I need to buy, and this is the specs of the one they said to buy,

    184-pin DIMM
    64x64
    PC2700 / 333 MHz
    Non-Parity, Unbuffered

    That was great, but I wanted to find one cheaper and I foudnt his one that is only an hour away from me, will this chip work? http://www.ramstore.ca/showproduct.php?id=215

    Go to Crucial.com and see what part number comes up for your brother's computer. If the CT # matches, you're good. That piece should work, but RAM is weird and it may not.
     
  3. mm, i think it'll work, but you might get a better deal if you buy it online.

    128 meg of ram sucks, that's what my older home computer has, and it hasn't ever been able to keep up with me. i'd suggest swapping it out for 2 256 sdrams, or maybe even 2 512s, becuase you know you need more RAM, always more...

    Providing both sticks of memory can peform at the same timings at the same speed it should be fine.
