I was wondering if it was possible to use PC133 memory instead of PC100 memory to upgrade my iMac G3 400Mhz slot load dvd computer. I've no problems with this when performing memory upgrades on a PC but being a new Mac convert I thought it wise to ask first.

Thanks in advance everyone :D

I currently have several vintage PCs which use PC133 sticks of memory so I simply thought I could save a few bucks by using those rather than buying new.

I find that it would an appropriate ending of my PC life and introduction into my new Mac life by sacrificing the PC components to better my Mac..

:eek:

Dude, I've never had problems with PC133 on any of the about ten iMac G3s I've upgraded. Let us know. they sail on 1 gig of ram... you'd be surprised!

I just got the exact same machine and put in 2x512 of PC133 SDRAM and it went in without a problem. Just think i'd easy any lingering concerns you might have had. Good Luck!
