My grievances are fairly similar to others in this post. FPM memory is at a premium these days and was wondering if anyone has been bold enough to try using standard SDRAM chips in their PM9500. I would try it myself, but I don't have a spare SDRAM chip to use. So has anyone tried it? Thanks.

They aren't in any way compatibile. The slots in the chip itself won't line up with the slots on the motherboard. I tried once to use a 32 MB PC66 SDRAM DIMM in a 7200 by cutting the slot wide enough to fit, but it wasn't recognized.
They are different physically, and electrically. Too much to function in that particular capacity, anyway.
I lucked out and bought an in-pieces 9500 with 128+ MB RAM for $100 with a video card, etc.. I am a happy boy now.. Might try out that cut DIMM for laffs, though..

Good luck
