FWIW, it's probably worth about the same on eBay.  270MHz Ultra 5's are 
getting to the point that they're almost hard to give away...  of 
course, one of the nice features on the AXi's is that they have more PCI 
and memory slots (and an ATX formfactor).

It appears to use the same memory as the U5 and U10:

370-3796  [F] 	32MB DIMM, 50ns
370-3797  [F] 	64MB DIMM, 50ns
370-3798  [F] 	128MB DIMM, 50ns
370-3211  [F]  [S] 	16MB DIMM, 60ns
370-3198  [F] 	32MB DIMM, 60ns
370-3199  [F] 	64MB DIMM, 60ns
370-3200  [F] 	128MB DIMM, 60ns
370-3201  [F] 	256MB DIMM, 60ns
370-3799  [F] 	256MB DIMM, 50ns

Basically 3.3V EDO ECC 168-pin DIMMs, though because of the addressing 
method that Sun used (10 v 11 column I think), you may only be able to 
use 1/2 of the module if it's not a Sun DIMM.
