Interchanging RAM

Don't laugh.... I recently bought an Emachines t1842. It has 128MB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM. I was wondering if SDRAM can be swapped out for RDRAM and if it is worth the cost, or if I should just install more SDRAM. The system says it's expandable up to 2GB. It has a 1.8GB Celeron, and a 40 GB HD. I mainly use it for looking at the internet and downloading music. If anybody would be so kind as to answer this computer novices questions it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike.

    Get a stick of DDR 2100, 256meg. That way, if you can't use the two sticks together, you still double your RAM.

  6. Add another stick of DDR SDRAM. Then when you get the bucks, if you want more speed use a P4. I just sold an OLD system faster than yours for $300.
