It's a 64 MB stick of Rambus ram, yes.

$46.00 here: http://computers.pricegrabber.com/printer-memory/Samsung-64MB-Rambus-PC800-800MHz-non-ECC-184-Pin-RDRAM-RIMM-Memory-Mfr-MR16R0824BN-CK8/m1085144791.html

Maybe you can get some on ebay?

I think it might be cheaper to buy a new LGA775 mobo with some DDR1/2 RAM to be perfectly honest :laugh:

Maybe another company besides samsung will be cheaper?

This is good enough http://www.ebay.com/itm/1GB-Kit-2x-512mb-PC800-40-Rambus-Rdram-Dell-Dimension-8100-8200-8250-Memory-/200872327638?pt=US_Memory_RAM_&hash=item2ec4ec79d6 thanks yall xxx

What you should do is toss out that machine before it give you any headaches. In all seriousness that ram was an attempt to bring a new standard to the table when DDR was introduced. It failed miserably for multiple reasons , most noticeably price and heat issues.
Invest in a new mobo/memory/cpu it would be cheaper than spending on new RAM-Bus memory.

I agree with Laughing Man. RDRAM is a total headache and Rambus pops in and out of court on a monthly basis due to all the patent trolling they did in the 90s.

Also, you should be able to get the supported processors for a board from the manufacturer's web site.

^Almost any junk motherboard should be fine for running 9x kernels.

Or you could just upgrade and run a virtual 9X system. Seems silly to want a 9X machine these days.

It's about 5 times the price of the equivalent amount of DDR2/3. Scary.

I can't imagine a game which runs on 9x that a virtual machine couldn't play at this point, or hasn't been ported to a new version of Windows.

It will either be Socket 423 (for early Pentium 4s), 478 (most common), or LGA 775 (newest). If it's an LGA 775, you will be able to upgrade the processor to a Core 2 Duo or Quad; however, judging by the fact that you have RDRAM, it's very likely that your motherboard has a Socket 423 or maybe 478, in which case, it's not worth upgrading the processor. Run CPU-Z to make sure.

as others said, don't worry about upgrading, any upgrade you will attempt will be a greater cost then just going all new.

You'll just be wasting money at fixing this, you can most likely build a new computer for the price it'll cost you to upgrade it. You could take the mobo out and start making an awesome table with it.

A vacuum tube stereo is very different than trying to add some more life to a P4. Tubes, to some people, fundamentally sound better. Processors, on the other hand, and nearly continuously improving.

Hello,

That's a Rambus DRAM (RDRAM) Rambus Inline Memory Module (RIMM). These were 184-pin memory modules that came in capacities of 64MB to 512MB with speed ratings of:[list]
[*]PC-600 (266MHz clock, 1066MB/s bandwidth)
[*]PC-700 (355MHz clock, 1420MB/s bandwidth)
[*]PC-800 (400MHz clock, 1600MB/s bandwidth)
[*]PC-1066 (533MHz clock, 2133MB/s bandwidth)[i] [size=3](for 850E, [/size][/i][size=3]might [/size][i][size=3]work with 850 depending upon chipset and CPU stepping and BIOS)[/size][/i]
[/list]
There were some even faster ratings, but those were the speeds I saw installed in desktop PCs and workstations.

The most common chipsets paired with RDRAM were the Intel 850 and 850E chipsets, which supported Socket 423 (Williamette) and Socket 478 (Northwood). The 850 chipset support 1.5GB of RDRAM, in the form of 2
