I have a Dell Latitude D600 and am looking to add 1GB of ram to the 256MB of RAM that I already have. When searching for RAM I see that the Dell website has it for $379.00 while I can find it other places for much cheaper (about $150 cheaper).

The RAM I need (according to Dell website) is 1GB SDRAM PC2100. My question is if I find these same specs listed somewhere else can I assume it will work as well as the RAM from Dell or am I missing some other spec here that I should pay attention to? Does all PC2100 RAM = 266MHZ? Just wondering why there is a big price difference.

Also, once I get the RAM does it matter if the 1GB goes into memory slot 1 or 2? In other words do you put the larger memory in a certain slot or does that not really matter?

So are the specs pretty standard? Is all PC2100 RAM equal to 266MHZ. Just want to make sure I am not missing a speed variable when I shop for RAM?
