Fairly standard price of £20/gig

roughly how much is 1gig of RAM for a laptop?

eBuyer have branded (kingston/crucial) 1GB sodimms (pc5300, 667mhz, I thinks) for £30.50 each plus postage, but if you buy them seperately you can get the £10 google discount on each item... so works out at about 45 notes for 2GB. Search this site for sodimm and you'll see the thread, or pm me for me info if you can't find it.

Yes exactly, its limited to which type of memory your motherboard can recieve, ie. SDRAM, DDR, DDR 2 etc...also how much each slot on the Mobo (motherboard) can take, ie 128mb, 256mb, 512 mb, 1Gb or 2Gb.

Regards :)

Most motherboards have three or four slots for RAM. If you buy what's shown here they take up two slots. Also, this is DDR2 RAM, some motherboards take DDR2, older ones take DDR1 RAM, if you've got one of those this RAM won't be much good to you. This RAM would only be good for people who have a PC with a motherboard that takes DDR2 RAM and have Windows Vista, it would be overkill for Windows XP, 1gb is enough for that.

Well, memory is like a plug socket in your home, you can never have enough!:-D

2 Gb is freat for gaming, video editing and other power hungry applications, however, rightly so, 1 Gb is sufficient for run of the mill stuff :)

will this be ok for a Dell E520 ????

Also to add to other comments. If you have XP or last years Win98/ME ;-) & all you use your PC for is basic internet usage, word processing & other office applications along with some oldish game play (quake 3 per ex.) then 512MB would suffice. Adding anymore would just be a waste of money as it would NOT get used.

This is a great price for 2GB kit. Nice find. Heat and rep left...
#14
this is expensive check out the corsair thats due any day now it can be pre ordered it sold out before its a few quid more expensive but has free p+p its ddr2 667 with heat spreader and is far better than this standard ram

dont forget google checkout they come to £46.35 delivered

Not expensive, and it is certainly good value, although to be fair it has been at this price for a while and has been pointed out on these forums before (although not posted as a deal). It is the best price at the moment for 2GB of DDR2-667 and that is what many people are after.

The Corsair XMS2-667MHz has been available for £35 delivered, but that was an exceptionally good deal - I had posted and bought some myself when it was £47 delivered about a month ago, then bought some more when it reappeared at £35, and it is still very good value back in stock at £47.

However, for anyone upgrading a system which uses the standard ram timings (CAS5, 667MHz), especially those having got the recent Dell deal, this is probably the ram to buy.
#16
This Memory has gone down in price...its now [B]£37.58[/b]!!!! (google checkout) as of 11.40 am

Fill ya boots, you Dell E520'ers :-D

A Mod or OP might wanna change the price :)
#17
what's the deal with this ddr2 then, i mean cas5?! nobody would even touch cas3 in the ddr1 days.

has the latency scale been changed with this higher speed stuff, or does it just not matter so much these days?

and damn it is cheap, you sure can't get 2gb of pc3200 for 40 quid, you'd be lucky to get a single 1gb stick :-(

new mobo time methinks....

Just bought some. :thumbsup:
This is a good deal particularly if you aren't interested in over-clocking.
#19
The kingston ram is £45 incl VAT, but less the £10 Google Checkout = £35. Add £2.58 for delivery to get Vowo's price.

Yes, CL does matter, as does out and out clock speed. As the clock speed goes up, the latency suffers. No free lunches here!

I wasn't aware that CAS5 was standard, Dell use CAS4.

I've just ordered a E520, with 2 GB 533MHz RAM.

If I bought this and installed it am I right in thinking it would not run faster than the 533MHz Ram already installed?

Also would it be even worth having 4 GB RAM over the 2GB I will already have, will I notice much of a difference.

I'm new to all this so go easy on me eh!:whistling:

cheers
#25
My understanding is that my new 667Mhz RAM will run at 533Mhz in my new E520. I also believe it's not worth getting more than 3Gb/3.5Gb as it won't be used by the 32bit version of Vista. I would have thought most people would be fine with 2GB to be honest... I'm just greedy, and it was cheap! :-)

What will you being using PC for mainly?

If you have 2Gb already, then I wouldnt bother, this is really better for those who bought the 1Gb E520 or who have 1Gb or less in their current PC.
#27
The "standard" cas latency timings have scaled with the ram as the actual address time has remained pretty much constant:

DDR - 266 CAS 2 is standard
DDR - 400 CAS 3 is standard
DDR2- 533 CAS 4 is standard
DDR2 -666 CAS 5 is standard

RAM which operates above these standards is generally more expensive, low-latency ram.

Very good price now its got cheaper ;-)
#28
Everybody keeps saying 'very good price' now. What actually happened is that some of the RAM companies conspired to keep the price of RAM high. There may be a criminal court case about it one day, but don't hold your breath. What you are seeing now is probably just the 'natural' market price, and anyone who bought RAM when the prices were rigged was robbed, put at its simplest.

Weklcome to HotUKDeals new members here and Thanks Mr_Bridger for your first deal post :)
#31
thanks - just what i was looking for! order in!
#32
GDB2222 - not true, that happened a few years ago with SDRAM and the companies involved got severely punished. That is not happening now, what is more likely is there has been a vast amount of 1GBit chips and 1GByte DDR2 sticks produced in preparation for Windows Vista, yet there hasn't yet been the anticipated rise in demand for systems hence the falling prices. Companies also still have inventories of 256MB and 512MB sticks (and even 128MB) which would become effectively valueless if the 1GB kept on falling.
#33
There does seem to be dodgy dealings going on in the memory market at times but RAM pricing is affected by other issues. RAM is quoted in the market as a spot price in the same way that other commodities such as pork bellies and frozen orange juice are traded. That’s one of the reasons why the price is so volatile; it’s highly affected by supply and demand.
At current prices RAM is supposedly trading at or below the manufacturing cost, which won’t go on forever. There is already talk of production being curtailed in 2H 07 which will be one force pushing the price up. There are also seasonal forces at work with this time of year being a low point.
As manufactures’ slowly start moving to DDR3 you can expect DDR2 prices to increase also; just look at the cost of DDR1 to see the picture.
If you buy at Google Checkout discount prices you are very likely buying it below cost. Even so, there’s no point for most people to buy more than 2GB. No matter how cheap it is, if you don’t use it it’s a waste.
#34
Strange..... its just gone up 27p!! ;-)
#35
Would this RAM be compatible with this product?
