eMac G4 - looking to purchase ram

My daughter needs to upgrade her eMac 1000 it uses standard 168 pin Sdram PC133, so I thought. two 512mb modules did not work, but the specs are correct? Most resellers are selling "apple" compatible ram for 30 to 40% higher than the IBM compatible ram, and it is the same?

Just looking for a list of modules or manufactures for 2 512MB sticks that work. And if not I will have to bite the bullet and pay the extra....

thanks

Obviously, it's worth getting the right RAM. Fortunately, you can probably find lots of PC buyers for your incorrectly Apple-suited RAM.

for an iBook 1.33 G4

It comes preloaded with 512mb of ram...is there a slot open or do i have to get rid of the 512 in order to insert a 1000?

also, do speeds matter?

This will work

RAM is RAM and there is no such thing as Apple RAM. You will get people on this board (who probably sell RAM) tell you otherwise. I buy RAM for my Apples and PC's at TigerDirect.ca. It has always worked. It is in the eMac G4 that am typing on right now.
Just know the number of pins (168), the speed PC133 and buy it.

There are some people that think you need certain types of RAM that exceed the specs of the machine you are using. The eMac motherboard was probably designed years before any of these new RAM specs came out. As for the Mac OS being fussy about RAM specs, don't worry about it. That was a few years ago. Just ground yourself properly before/during install.

on the 14" model there is an extra slot which can hold up to 1GB RAM (for total of 1.5GB).... don't know about 12".... my guess is that it's a similar set up... you would not be able to remove the built in RAM, but I'm not sure if and how much addtional RAM you can add... check your manual....
