If this hasn't been resolved, you could try this:

download SIW from here: http://www.download3k.com/SIW/Download-Free-siw.exe.html
run it on your system,
On the right hand side, you can select motherboard under Hardware
The right hand screen will tell you the manufacturer and model of your motherboard.

You can then go to http://crucial.com and lookup the type of memory you need.

Hope this helps!

Hmmmm..... it appears crucial also provides a scanner that will tell you the specific RAM your system uses.

With the numbers you provided from the mobo and ram, it one of several intel boards (or atleast a board with an intel chipset) that uses rdram (getting hard to find and is expensive). How much ram are you wanting to upgrade to? newegg currently has 2 sticks of rdramm thats ecc 256mb for $91.50 and 512mb for $225 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.asp?Submit=ENE&N=2010170541+1052108479&Subcategory=541&description=&Ntk=&srchInDesc=). Note rdram MUST be installed in pairs. If you want more info on the current motherboard chipset just to verify that it does use rdram you can use the tool bartender posted ( i have never used that particular tool) or this one http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4181.html called Everest (which i have used often).

Is there a sticker on the board or on the side of the last slot with a barcode. If so post the number on that barcode. The ram does sound like rambus, Dell and Gateway had used such memory on some models in the late 90's and early in 2000. Is this out of a Dell or Gateway?

Thank you all for your replies and suggestions but I ended up chatting with a gateway support technician and found out what I needed by giving them the model and S/N. (PC800 RDRAM) So I thought I would split the points evenly between you all and give the answer to bartender being that he replied first.  Any objections?

Thanks,

Ellsworth
