PC2700 RAM- Does anyone stock them?

A mate of mine wants to add more ram to a PC he received for general home use.

It has PC2700 ram and I have found some prices for them through Google(PriceSpy seems to find some and I can't find it in Shop Atomic), but when I get to the various sites that are listed, none of them have them available.

I usually get my tech from Haymarket (Capitol Theatre), and I will check on Monday, but if they don't have any (I usually go to Orange IT or the cheaper one next to the old Orange IT site). Does anyone have an idea where I might get a hold of 2 1gb sticks?

Any help would be appreciated.

Just get DDR400, it runs at DDR333/PC2700 just fine if that's necessary.

Does this apply to all chipsets? I've tried some SD RAM (PC133) in a PC100 slot and it was a no go. :-(

That's more likely to have been a SS/DS density issue than a PC100-PC133 issue.

Just buy cheap PC3200/DDR400. The board will clock down the RAM chips to PC2700/DDR333 speed.

I thought so too, but I tried a stick with the same density, both were 64mb I believe.

Thank you everyone for the help.

Just one more silly question, he just dropped off the PC and it's an IBM Thinkcentre - I tried to convince him to get new components and I would build him one, but being the rev head that he is he doesn't care much for PC's and all he wants is a web browser and an online poker player.

It's Obviously not new, but am I able to get say kingston ram for it, or do I need to get some OEM RAM for IBM PC's?

You can search for and get the approved model if you want, but standard Kingston ValueRAM will do the job just fine.

FB - it's possible it's a different issue, but it's more likely a random incomparability than a normal PC100 vs PC133 issue.
