    The mysteries of RDRAM

    I know enough about SDRAM to get arround, but RDRAM is a whole different story.

    My brother got a DELL P4 in August and I was thinking of adding more RAM.

    This is what I got from opening the computer and having a look at the RAM:

    He has 4 RIMM sockets.
    Two slots are filled with:

    NEC France, 64MB/4d, nonEC, 600-53, G100 S110 cards

    From what I could find on the Net, nonEC probably means Non-ECC, not sure what that means though.

    The other two slots are filled with:

    Some weird DELL blank card. It doesn't look like it has any purpose whatsoever, besides being a placeholder. I've never seen anything like it.

    How am I supposed to upgrade this thing? What should I look for?

    Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanx!

    Thanx for the input! Any ideas where I could buy such ram? I checked Crucial but they only have SDRAM.

    i know that www.newegg.com carries pc800. i don't know enough about reambus to know if that will work in your system or not (i suspect it will though) dell may have more specifics on their site (and you can buy it from them, but i think you'll find better prices elsewhere)
