I have Soltek 75DRV-4 and I have finally understood that 256 Mb PC2100/DDR266 just isn’t enough. Today I use Samsung memory and it works great. Now to the question.
What kind of memory can I use with this motherboard?
Do I have to buy "Original"-memory?
Or can I just buy any 512 MB PC2100 memory?
What is the difference between "Original"-memory and "Standard"-memory?
Thanks in advance guys, you rock!

(I'm guessing here) Original = Name Brand (Samsung/Crucial/Kingston/Mushkin/Corsair etc.), Standard = "Broker Grade" - mostly inferior sticks (due to less stringent QA, etc.) sold in bulk on the open market,
The rule of thumb (IMHO) is to never skimp on RAM. The few bucks you'll save will bite you in the a$$ by chewing up your valuable (pun intended) time trying to figure out your various blue screens/instability etc.
