ok. SDRAM is DRAM only that it's synchronouse Dynamic Random Access Memory which means it's tied to the system clock. ok so Im not good at teaching this stuff that's why Im not a teacher but all the types of RAM (EDO, FPM, SDRAM, DDR RAM and RAMBUs) are various types of DRAM. But usually I say regular DRAM is EDO & FPM RAM which is much slower than SDRAM.

You should be able to get that 256MB pc-133 SDRAM for your board if it can handle it which I'll assume it can. I don't think you'll have to remove that 64MB of RAM since most boards come with at least 2 RAM slots
