    Please restate your question, describing in more detail what you want to do. It appears you have spelling errors that are confusing.
    The memory will not make any difference, unless the 8200 has only 256 mb total memory....
    The processor speed will not make a significant difference either, but if you are trying to exchange them it will.

    RDRam was good... but it was expensive... now the price is reasonable..

    But changing the CPU would hardly be noticeable...
    Check eBay for RDRAM... I got four 512 MB modules that worked great for $60 recently... when it used to be $400 for four modules.
