Try to put it in your computer? Don't force it. If it doesn't fit then its not Compatable (sp?)

I beleave that is "continuity ram" its for RDRAM to balance the speed or something... but if you dont have RDRAM its pointless

new info: after about searching continuity *RIMM*(not ram), iv learned that it is for filling up empty ram slots. you must only do this if you have RDRAM becuase ... rdram is special... im sure pestilence can explain it better

RDRAM did kick ass at one time cus it was really fast and actually still is the fastest, unfortuantly at the time it was widespread it was to costly even for the extra speed. i cant say wheteher it is compatible with your comp cus i dont kno your what your comp specs are, if you comp is newer than 2 years old probalby not, if you comp is AMD then definatly not. I cant think of any AMD mobo that used RDRAM. sell it on ebay someone will buy it.

no, that RAM in that picture is the RAM that is currently in my computer. Its called SDRAM or something. What I was wondering is there a different kind of RAM that would be capable of fitting into my mobo because I was looking at ram for this computer and for the Dimension 8100 its like 510 dollars for 1 GB of ram which is absouluty ridic. So I was wondering if the mobo could take a different kind of ram like DDR or something... something cheaper(for games im guessing DDR though)

yep the price for RDRAM is ridiculouse, even today when next to know one makes a mobo that uses it. I still agree that that is RDRAM in the pic, no one that i know of puts heat spreaders on SDRAM, and 2 notches in the middle are also an identifier of RDRAM.
