this is about the cheapest i have seen a decent brand 4gb kit of DDR3 ram in a long time (excluding dodgy play.com deals!). i presume it comes with a lifetime warranty through kingstoon because nearly all of kingston's ram do have lifetime warranties.

maybe this is just the start of the price war that was mentioned with the kingston 3x2gb kit yesterday, i really hope so :D!!!

totally agree!!! im planning on doing a build xmas time, and when i used to go through the type of components i would be buying, the ram would always be the most expensive out of the whole system at like £105 for 4gb ddr3. now £68 is a much better price but im just hoping we see the £45 4gb kits of 2 years ago :D that would really make me feel much, much better!!! its not that far off i think, as USA get entry level 4gb ddr3 kits for about £50, so hopefully our prices will keep dropping :)!!

I paid £32 for 4GB of DDR2 about a year ago, that same kit today is currently £72.68. Crazy.

Thanks for the prompt. Got a L300-1AQ and looked at memory costs a few months ago. 4Gb is now 65£ as opposed to around £100 (think it was £120ish)

Just on Crucials web and it says matched pairs if dual channel memory..whats the 'code' for dual channel...DDR or DDR 2

DDR stands for Double Data Rate. then obvioulsy the 2 or 3 means 2nd or 3rd generation. dual channel would have to be 2 symmetrical dimms running together. you just have to read the product description to check whether or not its dual channel. if a kit contains 2 dimms it is usually dual channel ;)

i think the cas latency and other specifications are significant in RAM - this has not been detailed here which is may be why it isn't as hot. Because it's not simply how much memory it's the quality i.e. speed etc. that matters and is more significant!

Don't worry. You're not doing too badly. I posted a similar deal yesterday for 2 x 2GB of (slightly slower) DDR3 memory from Crucial which works out at £67.39 assuming you get cashback. I got three positive comments - and a heat value of -46 degrees (when I last checked)!

I suspect that the negative ratings are left by people who look at the product and decide it is something that they don't need and/or wouldn't make enough money if they sold it on fleabay. It's got little to do with whether it's a good deal or not.

yep i know that. but this is good memory if you plan on building just a basic system and need a chep 4gb ddr3 that u maybe lucky enough to overclock. this site is about finding good deals not finding the best products which obviously cost much more

Ah thanks Lucas, so nothing in the main description refers to it being dual channel. Learn something everyday.

no, you are right, the description on the ebuyer page is very uninformative but i could be 90% certain that this will run in dual channel mode. TBH if u buy a set of ram with 2 sticks in it these days its hard to find some that wouldnt run in dual channel. eg 2x2gb means two, 2gb dimms. im struggling how to explain it lol but ul just have to trust me when i say most 2x2gb kits will run in dual channel due to both 2gb dimms being identical :) hope that helps

TBH it seems like buying a cheap aldi pc and using it for parts (processsor, ram, blueray drive ect) seems to be alot cheaper than buying everything separately. £350 for computer. £ 70 ram on it own.
Anyone agree ?

ye i understand exactly what you mean and its a topic i've been through myself when i was planning on building a sub £600 PC (back when ram was £110). but IMO i prefer to build myself because u have more freedom to upgrade in the future and have better warranties on parts e.g. ram is lifetime warranty but if the ram breaks in a dell for example u are only covered by the same 1 year warranty for the whole pc. after opening up my brother's HP computer and seeing how cheap the parts they use actualy are is when i decided for definate to build my own. over a certain price range it is almost always better to build your own :)
