According to the HP.com website, the appropriate RAM for my computer is:
    Originally posted by hp
    SDRAM, 133 MHz, Intel PC SDRAM unbuffered DIMM specification, revision 1.0 compliant


Now, there are 144-pin and 168-pin SDRAM that run at the appropriate speed, my processor is a 900mhz AMD Athlon, my dinosaur computer is an HP Pavilion 8720 (D7206B - ABA), and I just want to buy some frickin' memory, and they (the spec gods) aren't going to make anything easy because I can't find a matching sentence fragment anywhere that will explain it to my understanding. Froogle returned NOTHING, Google didn't 'splain for me what this is meaning, a couple of the RAM manufacturers' websites didn't really help, so now my head hurts.

Can someone please tell me if this stick will meet my needs?

Thank you both for your help. I now have a spec that I can understand.

RECORDS SOUGHT IN U.S. QUEST TO REVIVE PORN LAW It looks like Google is fighting it, which is good. It just doesn't seem to me like this is the best way for the Justice Dept. to go.
