Can I do it or is the max 64mb per slot?

As is outlined on the 'Gurus motherboard pages, looks like you're limited to a max of 512 MB of RAM - i.e. 8 x 64 MB chips...

Opps - I may have mis=spoke - just looked at the Bam-Bam page and it seems that 7500/7300 may in fact support 128 MB chips... (at least it's alluded to on the page: http://www.macgurus.com/graphics/bam_bampage.html)

Wow fast reply!

Yeah its sort of eluded to on another page as well, but nothing definite. Thanks for the reply though.

The 7300 mobo page http://www.macgurus.com/shoppingcart/obj_show_page.cgi?mbppc7300.html shows 128MB as "Supported DIMMs" but with the limitation of 512MB max. I vaguely recall magician saying something about that 512MB maximum, but my failing memory...

magician? k

dudes, I am SO sorry for the confusion....all three of those machines, the 7300/7500/7600, can handle 1GB of main memory in the form of eight (8) 128MB FPM or 5v EDO DIMMs.

no problem installing one, or eight. They work fine.

I'll have dookie or spud fix those pages.....

just got an e from dookie....he fixed that page.

how many other pages are in error is another matter.

but since we're talking about the logic boards pages, dooie, jr, aka spud, has a whole slew of antique logic boards pages done and ready to post.

lots of stuff backed up....once i get over this cold, we're going to unleash a lot of new cool stuff. We've been a little stale, lately.

Hmmm, I thought the 7300 maxed out at 512MB. Are you sure I can install up to 1gig?

Thanks, and hope you get over that cold soon!

According to the Apple spec page the 73hundred has eight ram slots...this page says that it can utilize 128Mb Dimm ram sticks but that they have not been tested...8*128=1024! If Mag. says it can utilize all of the ram it probably can!

you can install up to 1GB.

take it to the bank.
