You will want CAS2 SDRAM. ECC is unnecassary and an added expense that is actually slower (~3%) then non-ECC SDRAM.

SDRAM that's CAS 2 @ 133MHz FSB stands a good chance of hitting 140+MHz FSB @ CAS 2 and 150+MHz FSB @ CAS 3.

Cosair makes quality SDRAM modules, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks guys...very much appreciated. Tomorrow morning I will order the CAS2 CORSAIR RAM:

"CORSAIR PC133 CAS 2 SDRAM 128MB 6 LAYER 168PIN CM654S128-133C2AM."

Note: My old instructor told me that two sticks of 64 get accessed faster than 1 stick of 128...any thoughts on that ?

Thanx again

Doc

Many people have told me that aswell, but I do not know..

Damn, my ECC slows my chips down? no one told me that! :-(
