Hello.
My computer was handed down to me by my brother a while back, and I was disappointed to find that it only has 256 ram in it. Everest Home Edition tells me that it is RD Ram. What I want to do is get at least 768mb RAM-1GB into this computer, but I'm not really willing to spend more than $80. I hope these pictures help with any information you guys need to help me? If there isn't anything included in those pictures that you need to know, ask.

RDRAM is virtually impossible to get these days, though it is still being made and chugging along in the business and legacy hardware sectors. Where you can get it it costs an arm and a leg especially when you consider that it has to be installed in pairs.

Not many people were licensed to make RDRAM, and those who did didn't make enough of the stuff to satisfy the demand, hence why the price shot up and later turned out to be the result of price fixing.

So I'd probably just be better off getting a new computer?
I looked on newegg and I didn't find any RD Ram.

Edit: I just google searched RD ram and I found some sellers, but a stick of just 512 is about $200. Forget that...
Anyway, thanks for the info about the ram.
