    I went to a few pc stores looking for the memory I need, and was told that
    66mhz memory sticks are pretty rare and that I'd have a hard time finding
    them in stores. I know there are some on ebay, but I was just wondering why
    the memory I need (66mhz) is so hard to find. Can anyone answer? I'm
    curious...

    Because they are obsolete.

    But, lucky you, you can put faster memory sticks in and they will work as if
    they were 66meg ones.

    Have you tried Crucial?

    Buy PC133 or PC100 memory. It will work in your system just fine. 66 is
    getting difficult to find because it's been several years since it was
    widely used in PCs.

    ,

    If you went to buy a horn bulb off a Model T that was
    in mint condition, you'd likely have to scrounge for it
    because the car is sooo old... same goes for 66mhz
    memory, it is in the computing world an antique...
    nobody has churned out 66 chips for 3+ years and the
    equipment that it was built for still is in use... just
    like the Mod T's horn, people aren't going yank their
    working memory from their towers to 'give' it away to
    you...

    You can use a lower-density PC100 also.

    They are rare because the motherboard's that use them are becoming obsolete
    so they don't make parts for them anymore. The only ones you will find are
    on sites that deal in old equipment liks CSO computer surplus outlet and
    there you can usually find them at a good price.
