Hi Everyone:

       I am wanting to upgrade the RAM of a friend's computer as a Christmas present.  
The type of RAM I am needing can not be found at any of my local computer stores.  
The RAM needed is PC100 SDRAM, 168 pin.  

       Any information regarding any reputable online stores which sells PC100 SDRAM at reasonable cost will be appreciated.  

       Thank you

Hi,

      Thank you so much for the links.  I have bookmarked all of them for future reference.  After inspecting some of them, I found much of the RAM with manufacture names on them like NEC, Compaq, etc.  The computer for which the RAM will be installed is a "custom built" pc and not a manufacture brand name pc.  With this point in mind, will any PC100 RAM work here?

Hi,

      I did try installing PC133, 256MB memory stick into this pc.  But, the pc only saw it as 128MB.  Therefore, it appears that each memory slot on this board probably understands up to 128MB of RAM.  Due to the fact the pc could only read the PC133, 256MB stick as 128MB, should I get a PC100, 128MB stick instead of a PC133, 256MB stick just to be on the safe side?

Hi Everyone:

      Thanks so much for the links and the follow up tips to help insure getting the right one.  
I understood everything pretty much with the exception of high density memory.  Could someone provide a brief follow up comment on the meaning of high density memory?

      Thank you.
