    Hi.

    I've seen some memory for sale:

    Ebuyer 256MB PC133 SD Extra Value RAM

    How do I know if it will be compatable with my computer? I don't really know abount this sort of thing.

    I have: (Info from AIDA32 V3.80)

    Motherboard Intel Easton 2 D815EEA2
    Memory: bus type SDR SDRAM, width 64 bit
    Real + effective clock = 133Mhz
    Bandwidth 1067 MB/s
    Ram slot - 3 Dimm
    Prosessor Intel Pentium IIIE 1000Mhz (7.5*133)

    I would be glad of assistence.

    Thanks

    Ok, So is mine DIMM then? From AIDA32 info program is says Ram slot - 3 Dimm.

    Or is it SDRAM as it says: Memory: bus type SDR SDRAM, width 64 bit

    Or is DIMM and SDRAM the same thing?

    Do I have to check that the memory is 133 MHz? Or can I go faster?

    I whould be glad of more help. Thanks.

    If it's PC133 then it's SDRAM, but also is a DIMM. It's not DDR. Make sure the memory you buy is the correct PC133.While you are in Aida32, click on Motherboard plus sign, and then click on SPD. That should tell you what is in the computer now, then use the same memory that SPD reports. It can be a different brand as along as it has the same properties as the original stick. btw, Aida32 is no longer being produced but another has been created and is basically Aida32 on speed. ;)
