Hi I'm thinking of upgrading my memory, but I'm not completely sure what I need to match up to be able to use it with my existing memory ->

SPD Memory Modules:
DIMM1 256 MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-6 @ 133 MHz) (2.0-2-2-5 @ 100 MHz)
DIMM2 256 MB PC2100 DDR SDRAM (2.5-3-3-6 @ 133 MHz) (2.0-2-2-5 @ 100 MHz)

For example would

work ok, the 184pin and PC2100 are ok but do I need to match up the memory speeds too?

Thanks.

If you go with anything much faster you will be better off leaving the slow stuff out.

Hi,

The crucial memory you linked to should run with what you have the speed (pc 2100) is the same the timings are what I think you mean and yes it is best when they match and in this case they do.

Crucial ram usually works well when mixed with other brands.
