G4 Memory Specs

What are the specs for 512MB memory on a PPC G4 733Mhz Quicksilver (from a non-Mac seller)?

My G4's manual:
PC 133 synchron DRAM (SDRAM)
64-bit wide, 168-pin module
max number memory devices on a DIMM is 16
UNbuffered, not registered
JEDEC specs: correct timing modes, SPD programmed properly
height not exceed 2"

Other specs(?) found online
non ECC
double sided, low density (is both hi and lo density OK?)

I'm not terribly sure so I'm not going to post an assumption but if you go to ( you can look it up and even purchase new ram there.

Any generic PC133 ram should work. Most PCs that are at their throw-away age right now use that ram so look out on Craigslist and other places for free/trash computers.
