    I'm new to using Macs. I bought an old Power PC G3. The full specs of the computer can be found at this URL:
    Anyways, There's only 80 MB memory and it allows up to 768. I want to upgrade, but I'm not sure if I need to buy Mac specific memory or just match the specs of the memory (3.3V unbuffered 100 Mhz 168-in SDRAM).
    Is this SDRAM memory the same for PCs and Macs or is it Mac specific?

    Thank you for any suggestions.

    You can use standard PC66 or PC100 SDRAM in the beige G3's. I've heard of people using PC133, but they had major issues with it.
