was browsing here on my phone and i had to come online to see if it was true, amazing deal.
#2
Hot deal, i paid £63 for mine 3 weeks ago.

Can't be missed at this price, ordered 2*2GB kits. Thanks to OP, rep & heat added! :thumbsup:

Sheet!

If only i wasn't skint :X

Paid £36 a module for mine :X

Don't worry about it, I know people who paid almost £50 for 1GB of this RAM and they wouldn't complain about the price difference. :thumbsup:
Paying less than £50 (with Quidco) for 2GB of top quality RAM like this one is a bargain not to be missed!
#6
Grrrr.

*Raids piggy bank to go from 2 GB to 4 GB*

eBuyer currently have 'em for £35.95 each, making it ~£72 for the pair - this deal makes them £26.43 each, or £24.70 via QuidCo (which i gotta work out how to use).
#7
Excellent price. I have ocz ram myself.

Please remember, if you are running XP you won't see an advantage in having 4GB of memory. In fact you will be harming system performance.

Those with XP-64bit and Vista, upgrade away.

I paid £42 for 2GB of Kingston ValueRAM 667 CL5 too months ago[:(] And My PC still isn't built! (Faulty motherboard + GPU, then 7900GTX at £76 on scan obselete, so X1950Pro 512mb coming soon[:)])

Also remember that you should always buy matched RAM, otherwise the fast stuff will run at the speed of the slowest stick.
#10
Got 2 gb of this at the moment on my P5K and very happy with it. Haven't even bothered to tinker with the overclocking settings as it runs so nicely. Would def grab another 2 gb at this price but am on XP.
suspended#11
just paid £62 for 667 for my mate's computer, this is a great deal!
#12
Wow, this is brilliant. I paid £57 for a ballistix PC2-5300 2 GB kit 3 months ago. Prices really are plummeting.

Should i get 2 more gigs? I do run Vista x64.

Not unless you manually set the timings and speeds through the BIOS. Of course you have to make sure that your old RAM can run at the new speeds.

Hmm. If you're running XP, then you will not get the full 4GB address space due to share with other peripherals, but you'll still have 3GB+ of memory. I doubt that it will actually harm system performance.
#14
Well since I paid £120 for this about 4 months ago it would be stupid not to get another set to have 4GB :-)

Damn you crofter!! I was supposed to be saving! :friends:

Heat and Rep added.
#15
Quidco link doesnt seem to be working though :(
#16
Great Price
#17
I have 4GB at work on XP (32bit), obviously you won't get the full advantage of 4GB, but using the /3GB flag applications can still address 3GB whilst the OS uses/sits on the other 1GB. So it's not exactly pointless getting 4GB for XP 32bit.
Awesome deal:thumbsup:
#18
Yep. Uses the legendary Micron D9 chips.

Super deal.

Those on XP or Vista 32-bit can only see between 2.5-3.25 GB of RAM, those on XP/Vista 64-bit can see it all.

Vista suffers from the same thing.
#20
Sorry if these are dumb questions :oops: , but I have a Dell Dimension 5000 with 2 x 512mb memory, running XP Home:
1. Can I install 2 x 1gb memory in addition to the memory I have (as per this deal), to then have 3gb total?
2. Can I upgrade to 64bit version of XP? Should I consider this?

Thanks.
#21
You could install the RAM as well, but if it's not the same speed, the faster RAM will slow down to match it. I wouldn't bother upgrading to Xp64 bit on a permanent basis, i'm currently on a 120 day free trial until the end of january 08 when i'll get vista, if you're interested i'll post the link.
#22
Thanks NintedoSensei for the quick answer. :thumbsup: I'll leave the XP 64bit upgrade, I'm sure you are right!
I'm going to put the order in right now for memory.
#23
You can't upgrade to XP64, only buy it. It's got MAJOR driver issues though, Vista x64 is a much better bet.

...t's got MAJOR driver issues though, Vista x64 is a much better bet.

Vista x64 has similar driver issues like Win XP x64 does, not much of the difference there!

The likelihood is that future 64 bit drivers will be developed for Vista primarily and XP will lag behind.
#26
Vista has a lot better driver support imo.

Running x64 Vista just fine here...
#27
Superb price, ordered + Quidco.
#28
great price :thumbsup:

buliding a system at the moment and wondered if these would match up alongside these i already have..

The ballistix run at the same speed at tighter timings, a sign of better memory. If you don't intend to overclock, the corsair would do fine.
#30
FTR these sticks have a more interesting setting in the SPD:

DDR1000 @ 5-5-5-15

Ahem let me spare you the blushes, Vista does not have better driver support for s**t.

That means you are overclocking which in turn increases the RAM latency. Try manually setting the RAM setting to 800mhz in BIOS and see if you notice the difference in timing.
#32
Erm, what?

Currently i haven't overclocked these sticks, but i've found that DDR1000 @ 5-5-5-15 gives better performance than DDR800 @ 4-4-4-12, although i've seen people getting stuff like DDR950 @ 4-4-4-15 and DDR1100

EDIT - I meant Vista x64 has better driver support than XP x64

That means you are overclocking which in turn increases the RAM latency. Try manually setting the RAM setting to 800mhz in BIOS and see if you notice the difference in timing.

Latency is a function of the clock speed and the timing so it’s not correct to say that over-clocking automatically reduces latency.
DDR2-1000 CL5 has the same nominal latency as DDR2-800 CL4 but with the advantage of 25% higher bandwidth.

DDR2-1000 CL5 = 5 / 1000 = 0.005
DDR2-800 CL4 = 4 / 800 = 0.005

Some applications benefit more from lower latency than higher bandwidth and vice versa, so it’s not possible to say one is better than the other.
#34
Thanks!

Also ordered another 2x1Gb to complement my set of ballistix 2Gb!

Heat and rep added.
#35
Intel systems react better to higher clock speed at the cost of higher latency. Jakg, you have overclocked your RAM, but it's just that crucial have stated that all kits will run at that speed, at those timings. A bit like EPP ram except not automatic.
#36
I haven't overclocked my RAM, as i'm running timings listed in the SPD

(Without sounding arrogant, if you think i'm a n00b, i'm not, i had a 40% overclock outta my old 3700, i'm just not that up on Intel Overclocking with my new Xeon X3210 rig)
#37
super overclocked my ram and my Q6600 to 3.6 GHZ stable

4GB of this memory+Q6600+GF8800=heaven for gamers!!! :thumbsup:

It's expired, glad i got some while it was cheap. 1GB of the same RAM costs more than the 2GB did yesterday.
#40
Congrats to all those who purchased this RAM at the cheaper price! :thumbsup:
