    I got a friend that has a dell 8100, and they only have 128 mb of rdram, my question is does anyone know which type they would have to get if they were interested in upgrading with more memory? 600 or 1066 mhz fsb? thanks...

    Oriphus You sorta of 'sound' tired or high or drunk(or maybe a combination of the three)
    But back to the post, I do not know the exact information but I know that you can go to the dell website and (once at the model's product page) you can click on tech specs, that should tell you all that you need to know._X_X_X_X_X_[small]This is an amazingly imformative site with many places to find information and help. Please support it.

    Stahly8,
    See http://shop.store.yahoo.com/memx/deldim81ser.html
    Basically they have to use RDram to upgrade. So the 800 would be best. The 1066 ete makes that you can buy SDram in will not work (from what I read, do a google search and may prove me wrong). So they may be stuck buying the much more expensive RDram. An other issue with RDram is it must be installed in pairs, and on most boards its alternating. Other wise will not work at all. So this website said there are four slots, you need memory in slot one and three no matter what. Older RDram boards, you need memory in ever slot no matter what or would not work (just like the old 386 proccessor days) When you open the lid see if every slot is filled or if just a pair. That will tell you if you would need 4 512Mb chips for the 2Gb max or just two chips of 1Gb for the 2Gb max.
    Hope that helps.
