HI

I googled "ram forum" and here i am :) Im just looking to upgrade an old computer for my niece. It only has 128 mb of ram! The comp has two slots and im thinking to upgrade to 512 mb(the max it will hold)
Im a bit at aa loss what ram to but. I went to crucial.com and it shows i need:

256MB, 144-pin SODIMM, SDRAM, PC133 memory module at 28.79!

then went to ebay and searced for the same and its comming up quite a bit cheaper but dont know if the specs are the same.

Any advice?

thx

yes that is important ,from what i see when i search the model #,it will take pc100 or pc133 ,maybe better to safe and buy the pc100 though,the pc133 would be faster but i cant say for sure it would work
