    My owners manual is long gone for one of my PCs, although I believe the person I bought it from said that my PC had SDRAM in it.

    Well.... according to PC PITSTOP, they are telling me in there test analysis that I have 6 EDRAM slots with just one 64mb RAM populating one slot.

    Are these two types of ram similar, the same, interchangeable? I would like to know before ordering any.

    Thanks in advance

    You really need to check your motherboard manual. Some motherboards can use different types of ram, but generally not at the same time.
    Do you know the motherboard make and model or computer make and model

    Check out http://www.crucial.com/

    Their site has a pretty good database of motherboards and the ram they need.

    They also have a more general discussion of the different types of ram on their site.
