If you buy branded ram, datasheets are usually available apacer has datasheets, crucial has their memory selector, and so on. i440bc

Depends what the customer is doing whether it makes a detestable difference. These are the modules which work on boards based on the bx chipset. I do not recommend any specific brand. Only PC Dimms are available.


I could be dreaming, but I was sure someone came out with such a board when the MHz coppermine P3s arrived and P4 was still a dog. As for memory, I can almost guarentee you that your system does not support high density memory.
