Pentium 4 Has RAM Memory Limitations
If you plan to buy one of the first Pentium 4 PCs, be aware of the memory issues regarding the new processor. The initial Pentium 4 PCs will include Intel's 850 chip set, meaning these PCs will only support RDRAM for memory, not SDRAM or DDR SDRAM. Keep this in mind if you plan to expand the memory of your P4 system down the road. Next year, newly released chip sets will support other types of RAM for P4 systems.
