I recently found a *new* P-4 machine in the trash!
Someone had started to build it then gave up...
and now I see why. It uses the expensive RDRAM (which was missing)
Anyway...I purchased *one* stick of 256megs on ebay only to discover
that the machine requires it to be installed in pairs...
so I ended up purchasing another 256 meg stick...but it was not identical
to the first. (yes a dumb mistake)
I eventually got a matched set of RAM (128meg sticks) and confirmed that
the machine works...but I am now stuck with 2 not-matched RDRAM sticks.
If anyone in the USA uses RDRAM and could test it and possibly work out
some kind of swap (weighted in your favor) please email me at
