    ok so i bought a 1gb stick fro Kingston that is on its way via fed ex. I've been checking the status and i noticed that they might be shipping me memory i did not want? this is what is says when i review my cart for the item shipped:

    Kingston 1GB DDR2 SDRAM Memory Module - 1GB - 333MHz DDR2-667/PC2-5300 - DDR2 SDRAM - 200-pin SoDIMM

    is this memory 667mhz or 333mhz, it was suppose to be the faster one. when i trace the steps i took from --> macbook and so on, i got it from it was the cheapest, it all seems to be what i wanted in terms of speed and size. but did i get played here?

    I believe that must eb a typo. From what I know, 333 MHz PC2-5300 RAM doesn't exist. Yet I am not sure.

    you'll just have to find out when you get it, it could be a typo.

    You're just gonna have to wait till it arrives on your doorstep. If its wrong, send it back.

    You're getting the 667mhz memory. You're just fine.

    From Wikipedia:

    PC2-5300: DDR2-SDRAM memory stick specified to run at 333 MHz using DDR2-667 chips, 5.333 GB/s bandwidth1

    actually i'm not sure but i think the 667 refers to the Front Side Bus of the system it goes with and the 333 is the speed of the ram or something like that. I could be wrong though.
