I have a Dell Precision workstation 330 with 512 RambusRam. I would like to upgrade this because Photshop CS2 and my RAW picture converter do not running particularly fast. I went to Compusa and they did not have an upgrade for me. I checked the Dell website and they didn't have anything either. What is the deal with Rambus Ram? Can I upgrade my memory to 1 or 2 gigs? Where is the best place for me to purchase this memory. Thank you in advance.
Hello, Rambus memory is very different and is hard to find now as they dont make it hardly anymore and it never caught on.
You still can find it but rambus memory is more expensive than regular memory would be.
You have to install it in pairs usually and should stick with the same type that is already in the pc weather it be ecc or non ecc ram.
I got this info for your pc model...
it tells you what memory will work in your pc and has to be in pairs.

is there anyplace that sells used rambus memory that is reliable? Thanks again.
Trust me if you get Rambus it will be reliable.
My opinion though on Rambus is that it is faster than DDR but to expensive. You must have a compatible motherboard, have a s--t load of money. DDR2 is out and is now starting to compete with Rambus. Soon Rambus will be like SIMM. Soon enough =)

PS: You ALWAYS have to use rambus in pairs, preferrably the same sticks.

Currently, Crucial does not offer RDRAM (Rambus) upgrades because only a relatively small number of our customers have expressed interest in it.
The right memory for your computer is the kind of memory it was designed to accept. If your system was designed to utilize RDRAM, you cannot substitute any other type of memory (such as DDR or DDR2).
