I have this old Dell Dimension 8200 and it only has 512MB of RAM. I would like to upgrade to 2gb which is the maximum amount supported but I am having trouble finding 512mb sticks of RDRAM. Also, on the dell website, it says that the RAM has to be 40ns or faster. Do they mean above or below 40ns? Because I saw a couple of sticks that said that they were 45ns.

If you are in the US try newegg.com. I think 40ns is not important, but know the type like ddr3 1333.

RDRAM is very old and they don't make it anymore. You will need to search Ebay, but my advice is buy a new computer.

You might need to take the memory out and search google for any numbers listed on the memory. You will want to match the sticks of memory.

Problem Solved! we were tearing down old computers at school and separating the parts into boxes. In the memory box I saw a couple of 512 meg sticks of RDRAM. So I sneaked them into my pocket, brought them home, put them into my old computer, it posted and recognized all 1.5GB of RAM! No more having to close background programs when I want to play Duke lol
