I have been searching for registered CAS 2 ram but cannot find any. I want PC2100 256MB for an Athlon 1.4Ghz on an ABIT KG7-RAID.

I can find CAS 2.5 registered or CAS 2 unbuffered which should I get?

CAS2 DDr is hard to come by. If you find a vendor, make sure you check the serials/labeling to make sure you're getting 2 and not 2.5.

You'll pay quite a bit more for it, too...

Mushkin has PC2100, CAS2 but it costs $122 for 256mb.

<b>Update:</b> Sorry, I didn't realize you were looking for <b>registered</b> CAS2. I misunderstood and thought you were looking for a choice between registered <b>and</b> CAS2.

<b>Update #2:</b> Seems it's my day for "jumping the gun". Mushkin does have PC2100, CAS2, Registered, ECC DRAM but it's $166. If your motherboard doesn't support ECC it will probably treat this RAM just as it would non-ECC but you should check with Abit. Also, registered DRAM requires an extra clock cycle so Registered, CAS2 DRAM would be at least as slow as unbuffered, CAS3 DRAM. I don't recall how much slow down results from ECC.

No, thank you. Just give me the BIG heatsink. It's an Athlon.<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by phsstpok on 09/28/01 01:37 PM.</EM></FONT></P>
