I've been trying to get an answer for this for more than a week but just can't figure it out.

I have an HP Pavilion a410y computer, and after going to www.crucial.com, they say that based on my system specs, the following 1GB chip should work for me:

DDR PC2700 • CL=2.5 • UNBUFFERED • NON-ECC • DDR333 • 2.5V • 128Meg x 64

I searched eBay for that kind of chip, and the following auction has it:


But at the bottom, they say that HP machines can't run high-density ram, so I need to buy the much more expensive low-density ram they sell.

However, the Crucial website (They call themselves the "Memory Experts") doesn't even MENTION memory density on their website! Do a search for "density" and it won't even come up on their whole website.

Here's the crucial site that tells me my memory needs http://www.crucial.c...N=CT367117#info

So, before I ignore the ebay seller's warning, I thought I'd run it by you guys and see what you all thought. Is the memory crucial sells low-density or high-density? It doesn't say anywhere, and if Crucial's is high-density, then that means I can buy the one from eBay, right? As far as I checked, they're the same memory, but Crucial fails to mention the memory density.
