Question about RAM...

I computer has 32 SDRAM 100Mhz in it, now I want to buy more RAM, I don't know which type of RAM I should buy, what brand in good ?? Can anyone recommend me? and if I buy 64 SDRAM 100 Mhz and add it into my computer, is it good? or I need to buy the 32 RAM and make them as a pair?

most memory you buy in computer stores are relible or you can buy for Micron online. Check you manual it will give you the info you need to buy memory.
It should be 168pin 10 nonoseconds.
How many open slots do you have? 168 sdram 100mhz does notneed to be used in pairs.
You can purchase a 64mb module and it will give you 96mb.

I have three slots in my motherboard, if I use different brands of RAM in my computer? Will it get any effect??

Well I think different brands of RAM wouldn't effect anything on your computer. Make sure you check your motherboard manual because some motherboard requires specify memory types(pins and voltage memory modules). As sorqie said most memory you buy in computer stores are reliable. If your system cache is 128k, there's not much point of upgrading your memory above 64mb you won't see much difference in performance but hey it's always better to have lots of memory.

Hmm...I know that in Australia you gotta look out for stores selling really cheap second hand RAM as new, or obtain some RAM which is not as stable as it should be etc and sell it cheaply. The thing is...whatever you buy, be careful of that.

OK, you could get brand names like Legend, Samsung, blah blah but they are all generally good. Most important is not what brand of RAM, but where you buy it. Any brand of RAM can go wrong.
