Using Supersaver Delivery you can get this matched pair of 1GB RAM modules (useful for dual-channel set-up which I use them in) for only £29.57 delivered. It has been on previously for over £31 from what I remember so hopefully those that missed out that time can get their hands on it this time.

User reviews are good and from my personal experience of it in my dual-core PC at home has been great. Stable RAM and works dual-channel no problem.

Can anyone confirm whether this will work in a Dell Vostro 200 desktop?

Well, the Dell website says that the Vostro 200 can take up to 4GB dual-channel 667MHz DDR2 RAM so this would fit the bill, check your manual to see how many spare RAM slots you have. If you have two with RAM in them then there's a good chance you'll have two spare that these would fit into.

Had a quick look at the ASUS site and it looks like your motherboard only take DDR RAM, not DDR2 so this will not be compatible, unlucky mate.

Try the Crucial site to see what RAM is recommended for your motherboard:

hi i have the dell e520 , i have 2gb installed and i know 2 spare slots is it worth the upgrade as im running vista? i think this is the correct ram . can you advise please.

thanks kat

Cant beleive RAM is so cheap these days, & It seems to be getting cheaper!

2GB of RAM for under 30 quid has to be a bargain :thumbsup:
#7
It's cheaper elsewhere though - only £12.99 per 1Gb plus p&p here, but still works out cheaper even including postage.

Also cheaper here, at £12.99 per 1Gb stick with free delivery.
#8
Even cheaper at Play.com - £12.99 per 1GB, so £25.98 delivered:

4% quidco too!

No doubt about it, this is cheap. BUT Kingston RAM is meant to be low quality so don't expect to overclock it much above spec.

Katya1971 ,save your hard earned cash, don't buy the RAM and put it towards a license for Windows XP. It's a great 'upgrade' from Vista :-)

Yeah, but this pack of 2x1GB sticks have been tested to ensure they match for dual-channel use, separate sticks are not guaranteed for dual-channel use. If you can use dual-channel then it's worth paying an extra couple of quid.

Kat, it depends on whether you have 32-bit or 64-bit Vista, only 64-bit Vista will 'see' the full 4GB of RAM. 32-bit will see anything from 3.2GB up to around 3.8GB from various reports. This link has a good explanation of why it happens:
http://www.vistaclues.com/reader-question-32-bit-vista-memory-limits/

Also try using the crucial tool I mentioned earlier http://www.crucial.com/ to see what speed your current RAM is running at, the scanner will give you all the info you need. The Dell e520 says that it can use either 667MHz or 533MHz DDR2 RAM. If you have 533MHz RAM already and buy this stuff then it will all run at the lower speed of 533MHz.

Good luck!

What is dual channel?

What is dual channel?


Basically dual-channel is something your motherboard has to be capable of so check your manual first or the website of your motherboard manufacturer. Then if you fit suitable RAM (a matched pair) it will basically deal with more data than the same two sticks in single-channel mode. It basically allows faster data transfer between the RAM and CPU because you don't have to wait for the RAM to reset and set-up for the next data transfer you normally get.

One analogy courtesy of [url]www.pchardware.co.uk[/url] was to think of it as two relay runners, the first runner runs the first leg while the second runner gets ready to grab the baton and run the second leg. Performance gains aren't huge, but are usually about 10% over single-channel mode which can help with certain things that are RAM intensive.

cheers, will the crucial app tell me whether i can run dual channel?
#15
Not sure, mate, but if you use something like Everest Free Edition it should tell you how many sticks of RAM, speed, etc. and what 'bank' it's in. I also think it tells you if dual-channel mode is active or not.

I'd also recommend looking up the details on your motherboard (or post your motherboard model number) and see if it is dual-channel capable. If you post it on here then one of us will have a look if you're unsure.

Cheers.

will do when i'm home, thanks for the help
