My doubt is this, can i remove 2 (64x64) and add a 128 Rimm, plus the other 256Mb rimm?
I mean, wouldnt it work like, 64x64=128 + 128 rimm = 256 + 256 rimm = 512 Ram?
If i can do this, please let me know since im no expert.
Thanks in advance, and cheers to you all!

uhm i'm guessing that you mean Ram.? not Rimm?
either way then you can do that, just make sure that the stick of ram are of the right sort for your type of motherboard.
?Usually they have pc133 etc on the stick of ram.
So just check with the sticks that you already have, and see if you can spot there frequency and then go into the shop and get the ram with the same frequency.
Someone might be able to offer more detail, as i am to tired to really think at the moment :( yaaawn.
you might want to confirm just exactly what RAM type you DO have installed
as cheap RAM that doesn't fit is an expensive addition
As you are using 64MB sticks now, I would assume that they are SDRRAM [Synchronous Data Rate RAM]
and not DDRRAM [Double Data Rate RAM]
so RIMM would NOT fit these
only way I can think of at the moment is to open box, remove a stick and physically examine it
if you haven't had the 'pleasure' of swapping RAM then click here for a quick guide as to the do's and dont's
in answer to your question :eek:
pulling out two 64's and replacing with a single 128 will leave the system [overall] exactly the same
so MOST people would pull the 4x64's and replace with a couple of sticks of compatable 256 / 512 thereby giving your system a quick speed upgrade
and giving you 4 sticks of RAM for the stockpile :D

I have 4 - 64 Rimms installed, PC 800Hz, i know that Rimms only work on pairs, that is why i asked, as i already have 64x64x64x64 if i could remove a pair, add a 128 Rimm + 256 Rimm of Ram.
