Default Anyone got some old school computer memory?

I'm trying to put together a system for a friend who just started college, and she just needs something to do basic stuff with, instead of having to run to the lab anytime she wants to use a computer.

So basically I need some old school PC133 168-pin SDRAM.

The system has 3 slots and currently has a whopping 128 mb, comprised of 64, 32, 32.

My stockpile has been used up by similar projects in the past, and all I have left is a bunch of 32s.

The system will be running XP Pro...go ahead and laugh, but its the only OS I had to put on there. Its actually not as painfully slow as you would think for basic stuff, Ive used it a little bit.

I think its a PC133 board, its a 700mhz CPU, so that would seem to be about right.

I guess anything 64mb or above would be considered. Im looking to get this on the cheap, surely someone needs to clean out a drawer or something, pay shipping maybe? I hate lowballing people, but I dont want to spend tons of money on this project.

I doubt very much that I have anything, but I'll check the little box of computer junk and see what I can find.
