Which Memory to Buy
Posted on 1998-06-09
I'm just about to spring for 128MB of SDRAM. It will be run on a BX MB with a PI 266.
I plan to get PC100 compliant, but then there are two kinds. My question is, should I spend extra to get
the ECC SDRAM, or not. Also, what's the EEPROM in SDRAM for? One more thing, is there anything
special about Corsair brand that makes it so expensive?
My confusion comes from the fact that I can find one brand of 128MB SDRAM DIMMs runnning for$300 and another as low as $139 with no apparent difference in specs. What is the difference?
