Why do you need a pair? Wouldn't one DIMM suffice, added to the current configuration? Those systems don't require matched pairs of RAM.

So, I checked:

For a pair of 256MB PC-100 ECC DIMMs, 2 x $68 = $136 (plus tax).
(Higher density isn't supported.)

The N440BX specs say that "Only ECC (72-bit) DIMMs are specified for use
in the N440BX Server system" (either registered or unbuffered, the
latter saving a clock cycle).

That's about a month worth of lunches at Quiznos.  Fond as I am of
old unca' Enzo, those sandwiches are a better deal.  ;->
