| The performance difference between PS/2 and EDO Ram's isn't so

Actually, FPM RAM is slightly MORE expensive than EDO at the
moment. Parity RAM is defintely more expensive than both. Seems like
comapnies are producing a lot more EDO these days so prices have come
down. One good source for RAM is ChipMerchant:
(Careful, the CPU prices are "cash only", bu the listed RAM prices are
Credit Card prices).
| I'd buy PS/2 RAMS with 60ns and Parity (since most mp boards support
| parity checking - or am I wrong -) and would choose a 133 MHZ CPU,
| because then memory and bus bandwidth are higher ! 66MHz instead of
| 60 MHz.
All the 430HX (Triton II) boards support parity (and ECC).
Most current (Pentium) baords are Triton-II, inclduing the Gigabyte
