If you are buying the computer as a package from a vendor, ask them which type memory the computer will accept. Usually today, it will only accept one or the other, not both.If you are buying a MOBO and installing yourself, check with the MOBO manufacturer to see which memory the computer will accept.Go to www.crucial.com and read about memory to get an understanding of the history of memory and where it is going in the future.

Well they also make 333mhz PC2700 DDR RAM, never tried it though.I use 2GB of PC800 RAMBUS. RAMBUS is the fastest as far as I know. Expensive though. Of course, you don't need 2GB, but I do alot of CAD, so I need it. My previous setup had 512MB of PC2100 DDR RAM and it worked like a charm. I would use DDR if I were you. Try DDR333. Seems to be good stuff.Hope this helps.btw, go AMD, screw Intel and their prices.
