    Which type do I use in my G3 Beige DT?

    What exactly, is the difference?

    Does PC 133 or PC 100 make a difference?

    Thx... MP

    I'm assuming you have the "Grossamer" series. According to Crucial, I'd use PC100 and non-ECC.

    ECC is for error correction, and is mainly used in servers.
