silly question, but would this work on a dell dimension 3000 that takes pc3200?

No, PC-3200 is DDR and this is DDR2.

have a look over at crucial.com and click on scan my system, this will tell you all the info you need on the memory for your pc

Had some of this a couple of months back and had to return it as one stick was bad. Stick to a better brand.

ok so one stick was bad, return it and get a replacement stick and all will be well.
#6
thanks for the answers.
#7
very cheap for 2gb ddr2, well no brand is perfect pny are a big brand i think.
#8
thanks op- ordered. i've been half-heartedly thinking about going from 1gb to 2 or 3gb for a while and this pushed me over the edge. crucial want £35 for 2x 1gb sticks so this is a great price.

I don’t think PNY is one of the best but for bog standard RAM that you want to run at stock speeds they are fine. I’ve bought OCZ and Geil that was faulty so it happens to all manufacturers at times.

I currently have DDR PC2-5200 RAM installed, I presume that this memory from Play will work?

You probably have PC2-4200 or PC2-5300 as PC2-5200 is not a standard frequency. Either way it will be compatible.

Great, thanks Agharta. Rep added.

Remember with play you only get 28 days warranty - the rest is with the maker...

will dual channel ram work on a single channel motherboard?

very hot btw... was looking for some of this exact ram (single channel though) and the cheapest i found for 2gb was about £24
#15
There's no such thing as dual channel ram, this is just ram that's matched in specifications, so will work in dual channel perfectly.
#16
Nice price for the current market, a year ago you could get 2gig of RAM for £13.99. Shame the prices have gone up over the past few months.
#17
How do we find out if this is ECC or Non ECC?

Is this 1.8v?

thanks

Have you ever had to use warranty with RAM???

I am not computer literate, therefore any help will be much appreciated. My 2 PC RAM ref. are: 256MB DDR2 400 mhz 1RX18 PC2-3200U-333-10-c1; the 2nd one is the same except instead of X18, it is X16. If I were to purchase these and replace my ones would it work? Anything I need to look for when purchasing RAM? The reason I am giving these details is because I bought one from ebay ref. 512MB 1RX4 PCE-3200R-333-10-C1.but it didn't work, although it had the same BASIC reference numbers, ie 512 MB PC2-3200 DDR2 RAM, with some difference in other details, eg 3200R intead of 3200U (mine) and 1RX4 instead of 1RX18 (mine). When I tried the one I purchased on my second PC, the PC stopped working, only the fan works and the light being on. Thanks in advance.

Edit, if it helps, my 1st PC is a Dell Dimension 5000 and 2nd PC is MESH.

What processors do the 2 PCs have?

It will be non ECC - error checking code RAM is usually a lot dearer than normal stuff. Again I assume it's the usual 1.8v too.
#22
Thanks mccririck

For my Dell under System information it say Processor: x89 Family 15 model 4 Stepping 3Genuineintel ~2993mhz; as to the MESH, it stopped working- is there a way I can tell the processor, or even get it to work again- as I said I am completly PC illiterate?
#23
Your 3200R RAM would appear to be ECC [as mentioned above] which is not compatible with the 'standard' non-ECC RAM.

This type of RAM [ECC] is used mainly in servers AFAIK, and you must have the correct type of motherboard/CPU for compatibility.

That will be why your ebay RAM doesn't work properly I'd say.

The Dell definitely uses standard non-ECC, unbuffered RAM http://www.crucial.com/uk/store/listparts.aspx?model=Dimension%205000%20Series&pl=Dell&cat=RAM
#24
Thanks Faythur

If I may ask you a further question, what are the exact details one should look for when buying RAM to fit with one's PC RAM..(and the details to disregard). I have diffculty knowing what RAM to purchase, hence my mistake in purchasing one from ebay. The paly.com ones don't say it they are ECC or Non-ECC, so would they work with my PC's ones (and along side them?). TIA
#25
Not sure why the Mesh has stopped working, have you taken out the dodgy ram and put stuff you know works back in?

The PNY in this offer will work, play wouldnt sell ECC RAM

Couldn't agree more, this is the only stuff thats ever failed on me in over 15 years of RAM installing.

As already mentioned for a working system you could use the crucial memory scanner or similar and for a dead one your best bet is doing a search on the motherboard model/serial number and going from there.

This are perfect for Dell 5150 , from what i can see you can have up to 4GB,

Dont worry about dual channel , single channel, there is no memory specially for dual channel anwyays! All it means is, its the same memory so will work perfect in dual channel,

Good luck
and hot by the way

Excellent price, nice to see DDR2 prices coming down at last. Tempted to buy just to stock up next time I need some for a PC build or upgrade.
#32
Thanks for the advice, I will get it! Compared to Crucial, the price on this deal is amazing!

Whilst the case is open I will try to fit a graphics card ... is this one good? http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3432514/PNY-Verto-Geforce-8400-GS-PCI-E-256MB-Graphics-Card/Product.html - all I want is something cheap under £30 ... if I can play my old copies of GTA 3 and GTA Vice City that'd be a bonus ....

Haven't fitted RAM on a PC since 1998, lol!

Hi will this do for my mother board
Dual channel memory 2 * 240 pin dimm unbuffered non ecc
667/533/400 mhz ddr2
BUT STATES
This motherboard does not support memory modules made up of 128mb chips or double-sided * 16 memory modules .
Seems a good buy if it fits .
Thanks in advance

This are 667mhz (the highest your motherboard will support) they are great for the price ( i paid 35 just few days back) , Go for it, it will fit ;)

If you want, you can give me the exact model of your motherboard and i can double check, but from what you put, it will fit just fine!

Your welcome mate :)

That card is a nice entry level Nvidia chip supporting DirectX 10 , As you know , you wont get much out of it for new games but im certain it will do fine with GTA3 and stuff ;)

Good price too!

EDIT: Make sure your motherboard does support PCI-E , this is different to normal PCI (bigger one) , if you let me know the model, i will double check for you ;)

Not a bad upgrade if you have an older PC and want a bit more life and performance out of it.

For those in doubt about whether it will work or not can I make a few suggestions.

RAM works best when all the sticks in your PC are the same speed/rating - in this case the sticks are DDR2 - 667MHz (PC2-5300). If you mix RAM of different speeds, all of the sticks will be slowed to the speed of the slowest stick. So first things first you want to find out what amount and speed of RAM you currently have.

If you bought your PC prebuilt from Dell or someone, you could look in the paperwork that came with it, or Google the tech spec online and it should be listed. Alternatively take the side of your case off, and look at the stickers on the RAM sticks. Make a note of the size (512MB, 1GB etc.) and the either the speed (in MHz) or rating (eg. PC2-5300). Also check how many empty slots you have to put in more RAM. Different motherboards support different numbers of sticks, though 4 is the most common. If you have free slots you will want to look for RAM with the same speed/rating.

Unless you bought your PC very recently it probably uses DDR2 RAM. If your PC is around 5 years old it might be using even older DDR RAM. The different types of DDR are not interchangeable. The difference is noted in the rating, so PC2-3200 would be DDR2, whereas PC-3200 would be older DDR. There is a notch in the RAM stick that will prevent you putting the wrong type into the wrong slot. The change from DDR to DDR2 occured at PC-3200 (400MHz), so anything faster should be DDR2.

As for single channel or dual channel - again look at your motherboard where the RAM is. If you have 4 slots and they are all the same colour, you likely have just regular slots, and can put different size sticks in each slot. If the slots are paired up into two colours (eg. 2 black, 2 yellow as mine are) then you likely have dual channel. What this simply means is you should buy RAM sticks in identical pairs, and place the pair in one of the colours - both in yellow, or both in black, but not one in black, one in yellow. Again if in doubt this should be included in the tech spec on the website of whoever you bought your PC from.

HI, thanks for reply mother board is a asus n4l-vm dh
it was the last bit about
This motherboard does not support memory modules made up of 128mb chips or double-sided * 16 memory modules
that worried me cant see what type the ram is if you can help on that bit as well.

I can confirm that they will work with that moherboard (according to few forums) , as long as i am aware of , 128mb chips are used only on larger memory (4GB on one module) , But i can be wrong!

I am not sure how to get the motherboard info without downloading additional software :oops:

According to the pdf manual supplied with the computer, there are card slots for PCI Express, there are 2 - one is x16 and the other is x1 - there are also 2 PCI slots. As far as I know I am using some form of intergrated graphics.

I think I should be ok (pls correct if I am wrong), no doubt the nerves will kick in once the case is open! Thanks for your help.
