Correct me if I am wrong, i810 supports 512MB PC100 with a FSB of 100Mhz,
i810E supports 512MB PC133 with a FSB of 100Mhz, and i815 supports  
512MB PC133 with a FSB of 133Mhz, and then we have my baby the 830M  
which is a mobile cross breede betwwen a i815 and i845 chipset and it  
supports 1024MB PC133 with a FSB of 133Mhz.

Thanks - Joe
