hi
im planning on buying Ram for my pc and am not exactly sure what kind my pc would need
all i know is that my pc uses the single knotch ram card. is there just single knotch and double knotch ones or does it go further than that?
also, is ANY single knotch ram card compatible with any computer that fits single knotch RAM discs? and by that i mean Can i just go out and say HEY I WANT 1GIG RAM THANKS, SINGLE KNOTCH

i went to Packard Bell site to see waht Ram my motherboard would need and this is my motherboard:
iMedia M838
which can hold maximum 2gig ram
and this is the ram they suggested for my motherboard: 1GB Packard Bell iMedia/iXtreme PC2700 DDR333 nonECC DIMM
what are some similar ram cards that i can just buy from dick smith that are similar to the one above


thanks

Hi BS_1, you can go to Crucial.com and run their Crucial Memory Advisor™ Tool or the The Crucial System Scanner to see what RAM is needed.

PC2700 DDR333 nonECC DIMM-- thats the type you want- just find the appropriate brand (something reliable) and the right price and those are the only specifications
