I did a Google search for you and all I came up with was this:

32M x 64 Bit PC-133 SDRAM DIMM PC-133 SYNCHRONOUS DRAM DIMM


Basically, you have PNY PC-133 256MB SDRAM. By today's standard, that is old and slow(133Mhz).

Here is the PNY page:

http://pny.com/products/memory/sdram/desktop.asp

If your computer has an empty slot, more likely than not, it will support another stick of the same size. You can also try a 512MB stick, but that is up to you. Back when I had a Gateway P3 866Mhz, my motherboard did support PC133 512MB SDRAM.

cool thx. now if i get another 256 would that equal sum1 having a 512 stick of ram? and if i get a 512 stick would that be the same as sum1 having a 768? and why is there 3 sticks of 512 at different prices, do they make a difference and which should i buy. or is a 256 all i can get?

alot of ?'s ^
lastly this looked too good to be true. could this work for my pc?

1. Yes
2. Yes
3. http://redfaction.levels4you.com/forum.l4y?do=view&t=137400&viewfrom=2
4. Which one you can buy is a tricky thing. Since I don't know what your board will support. It should support another 256MB, I don't know if it will support a 512MB stick of RAM.
5. No! It's not a good deal, since you can't use it. That RAM that you have a link for is way too fast for your system board. That is a fairly new speed of RAM. I'm still using 400Mhz RAM (3200 DDR) and my motherboard won't support any thing higher. What you are looking at is 533Mhz, you need 133Mhz RAM.
This is more what you "might" want to buy:

It all depends on how strapped your system resources are(how low ).
I recently upgraded from 1Gig of RAM to 2Gigs and I wasn't able to notice a difference. Then again, I don't have that many programs running in the background.

NO! What you linked me to was a 266MHz stick, what you need is a 133MHz stick....A PC133, not a PC2100.

256MB PC133 SDRAM DESKTOP MEMORY COMPAQ HP DELL SONY

You better make sure it says that it's for a desktop and NOT a laptop, they are not the same.

Quoting polingtechnologies
You are bidding on a stick of RAM, 256 MB PC 133 SDRAM. I am selling this as-is.

I see the item has been sold for $4.99 plus $9.99 for shipping for a total of [drum roll]...$14.98.
If it was you who bought it. Good luck, hope it works for you.
