present a good argument. I've never used the MB, so it could be
dead and I may have to buy a new one, even though the one I have
is new. So, I think the extra $30.00 to get the PC2100 DDR is
worth getting so I can use it still in an upgrade if need be.
That is my only reason, hrs, for getting the "faster" memory,
because like Mork from Ork says, "nanu-nanu; shazbug," a
nanosecond isn't noticeable to us. ;)

it either works and last a long time, or it doesn't work from the
get-go. However, a retail version is out of my price range, I
think. I haven't checked out my pricewatch.com on that yet. The
motherboard (MB) I have won't take an AMD, else I would go with
it. I know there are those that are Intel only, and that strongly
believe that AMDs should not be used, but I have always used AMD
and never had a problem out of them except for one and it was bad
from the get-go, I just couldn't prove it to return - a long
story... Maybe, I can find a MB combo with the RAM and CPU for
cheaper than the route I am going trying to buy for an existing
MB that I have. I could just resell the MB on eBay. It was one of
those "package" deals from a seller on eBay that I picked it up
in the first place and only paid like $14.95 for it with shipping.

I may have missed it, but it sounds like you've bought a board of Ebay
and you're not sure it's good or not. What I would do in that
situation is swap in known good parts. in fact I had to do this a few
weeks ago for a relative's puter. I had to pull parts out of another
puter and put them on the bad board before I could determine the board
was bad. Make sure you have an ample supply of thermal compound! LOL

I can so it'll last longer in terms of upgradability. They've already
started to phase out PC2100 too, which means the puters I built 2-3
years ago will need new RAM should they get a new board :(

it was not blazing by any means.

shaped differently and you could crack the chip. And altho you want
your morning cereal to go *crunch*, hearing that from your CPU is not
a good thing :)
HTH, YMMV, HANW :)
