    what i read in a powermac g4 quide, i see that the dual 867 mmd uses pc2100....but when i go to memory upgrade sites, they say this computer can use pc2700....i was thinking that the dual 1 and 1.25 could only use pc2700....can one use pc2700,,,,and will most stanard memory work,,such as crucial, kingston, corsair

    Perhaps 2700 will work as it operates as 2100? Thats my guess.

    I have had good luck with using regular memory on my macs, not bothering with paying for more for the memory that works with apple, even on my non-intel power pcs.

    from what i understand, the 1.25ghz and up use pc2700 while the lesser use pc2100.

    The pc2700 ram for that dual 867 MDD will automatically clock down to pc2100 speed.. if you find a good deal on pc2700 ram buy it .. :)
