Default Please, need answer ASAP!

I am extremely sorry for the double post, but this needs to be answered quickly

If crucial.com scan says that I can only use 1GB, 184-pin DIMM, DDR PC2700

Am I able to use 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700)?

is there a difference?! PLEASE ANSWER QUICK

Please stick to 1 post...we will get to your posts when we are able to.

If crucial's scanner said 1GB of PC2700 then that's what you'll be able to use. You named the same thing in your next line.

So DDR DIMM is the exact same thing as DDR SDRAM?

Technically speaking, yes. DIMM is a broad term, which spans all iterations of RAM.

DDR SDRAM refers to just plain DDR. It's the first part that's important. In this case, PC2700 is DDR 333 RAM.
