Oops, I forgot to tell you. I went to Radio Shack last night, and they don't carry it, and neither the rest of the island of Maui). (Go Hawaii...) However, they also could do D2U (Direct To You), and the good thing is it counts as a store purchase, so you could return it if you needed too. I ordered 2 sticks. Sadly, it costs $3 more with D2U since the RAM is direct from warehouse in Texas. Meaning I spent $6 more, not much though, but you gotta do what you gotta do to keep some Legacy computers up-to-par with todays technology.
Already tested the memory with Crucial before hand, but I couldn't tell you this because it was late (about 9PM) and I needed some shut-eye.
The computers memory info is - PC133 133MHz 168-Pin SDRAM. With 3 slots, 1 already in with 256MB.
The stick I bought was Centon PC133 133MHz 168-Pin 512MB SDRAM. Perfect fit!
Hurray for RS still carrying SDRAM
, since the worlds now ruled by DDR (1,2,3, soon 4)
Should I also take this chance to clean the insides with compressed air?
Irrelevant, but something I wanted to say : The store cashier told me as I was purchasing was that his 8 year old computer is still able to run high-end games, and it just needed a RAM upgrade.
. Probably also upgraded his Graphics Card, Processor, through cleaning of the inside, careful use)
