        well, you'll have to make sure you get parity SIMMs, which'll cost
more; and since they're SIMMs instead of DIMMs you'll pay quite a bit more
for them (supply & demand & all that). from what i've seen, $2/MB is a very
good price for SIMMs these days.
        keep in mind you'll need to get 4 identical SIMMs as well (4-way
interleaved memory); so that may up the price a bit.

all in all; it won't be cheap to upgrade these things, and may not be worth
it (depending on how and how much you end up using them).
