    I purchased a computer at a garage sale a couple of weeks a ago for a couple of bucks. the older couple said it was dead, but I liked the case and was planning on moving my internet computer into that case. it was a micron millenia max gs 800 and the only thing wrong was the video card was dead. I put in an old video card, cleaned up the windows os and the computer ticks like a new watch. according to the micron website, the motherboard is a tazer 2, tyran s1854 http://support.mpccorp.com/apps/specs.asp?ID=3176 the total pc133 memory is 768mb. my current internet computer (pIII 500) is limited to 384mb of memory so I'm thinking about buying 3 sticks of pc133 256 memory for this micron (it has 2 sticks of 64 mb for only a total of 128). the micron website and several other memory websites say that this computer will use pc133, cl-3, unbuffered, non-parity, 168 pin, 3.3 volt sdram dimm.http://www.crucial.com/store/MPartspecs.Asp?mtbpoid=3A9D9256A5CA7304&WSMD=Millennia+MAX+GS+800&WSPN=CT178220 since pc133 is so expensive new, I want to try and find some used memory, but comparing all the pc133 (on ebay for instance) and trying to figure out which will work is ridiculous. my question, will most pc133 cl-3 unbuffered 256 mb work in this computer? what are the important specs, what should I look for in the specs so that I get the right memory so it will boot? thx
