    LAST time i upgraded RAM for a computer ,the most common RAM type was SDRAM ,...and was the correct one for my computer. Since then i understand SDRAM as become passe,out of fad.


    I now have a new computer and would like to upgrade memory again. What is the most type of RAM now? DDR? And can i use SDRAM on a new computer?

    Well you apparently have DDR, so use must use DDR (and PC2700 DDR to match your current stuff). DDR is just a new evolution of SDRAM. The slots and chips and not interchangeable.

    Go to www.crucial.com to determine the correct type of RAM your computer needs.
