    What RAM can you replace/use instead of buying PC133 SDRAM? I heard you can put in PC2700 RAM and it will just downgrade itself to run at the PC133 speed. Any thoughts on this?

    REVISED.....

    Where can I can buy the PC133 ram for cheap? Here locally its like $200 cdn.

    It's late, so I may be completetly off base here, but don't those memory types have different dimensions?

    Unless I'm entirely confused, it's not going to happen--PC66-PC133 (old-school) is 168-pin. DDR SDRAM (PCxxxx) is 184-pin. Therefore, it wouldn't even fit in the slot.

    It will help us a great deal if you could specify which Mac you have and what RAM you are looking for.

    PC133 and PC2700 are completely different and not interchangeable.

    You can buy 512 Mb of PC133 for a 700 MHz eMac for well under the price you mentioned at a number of Mac-centric internet sellers.

    Just make sure you choose a reputable dealer who tests and guarantees the RAM compatibility in the eMac, and offers a lifetime warranty.

    Thanks
