It's compatible, if that's what you're asking.

BTW, for more flexibility in your can also use 'faster' RAM in a machine spec'd for 'slow' RAM. As long as all the other parameters are compatible it will work.

For example, that is PC2700 RAM. If the opportunity comes up you can also use PC3200 RAM. It won't make your machine go faster unless your machine is actually spec'd to use PC3200 RAM, but it will work.

For comparison as far as bidding prices go, you should be able to find 184pin 1GB DDR SDRAM PC2700 (or 3200) RAM for maybe a bit above US$30 in Europe. It sells in the states for full RETAIL under US$30.

edit to add:
In my opinion, unless you're buying from a very trusted source...memory, CPUs, and motherboards are items you have to be very wary of purchasing "used". It is easy to damage them physically, or by overclocking, or via ESD with improper handling. And, many people don't have a clue when it comes to packaging them for shipment to protect against ESD damage...sometimes tossing them unprotected (ESD-wise) in a box full of foam "peanuts". You might as well shoot the part.

thats great thanks. i wont be buying from eBay i was just browsing and wondered if it was the same. the system can take the faster ram but its a case of cash as the people im doing this for are strapped like everyone else in the world i guess. thanks for the input though it has cleared a few things up for me. :)
