On welovemacs.com when you are looking at the ram for a 266 G3 beige DT it lists two 256mb chips, and one says if you have a non apple processor, use the other ram...can someone explain it to me?

It means that if you have an aftermarket CPU upgrade installed (so that your machine has a faster chip than the original), you should use the faster (more expensive) RAM.

I know that you should, but is it necessary? Would the old ram even run the machine if I upgraded the CPU?
