    I am after some extra memeory for my daughters PC - straightrorward enough as its 256 Mb PC2700 DDR333.

    Question is there are 2 sticks in Crucial page, one is 32 meg x 64, the other is 32 meg x 72 - are they both fully compatible?

    The difference is probably parity on the 72 bit wide (1 bit for each 8 bit byte in the 64 bit word).

    99% of systems do not use parity so you want the 32x64 DIMMs.
