I am not fully convinced that your system can ONLY use fastpage memory, but with brand name computers anything is possible.

70ns Memory modules are in general expensive.  There are "generic" modules available and I propose you look for them at the following sites:

Kingston Memory (good quality):

Around $55 - $65 per 16MB SIMM
Cnet computer hardware site for Crucial Tech Memory Modules (you'll have to search Cnet for them):

Around $35 - $45 per 16MB SIMM

At this site you'll also find prices on memory modules from other companies.

Fast Page memory by nature is not expensive, it just got left in the dust by EDO and the newer 168 pin stuff, follow Gryphon's suggestion, both Kingston and Crucial can help you with FastPage memory modules, will get you to the Crucial site (they are the parent company of Crucial), or look in any pc mag, they always have full page ads with toll free numbers.
