Been here over a year but this is my 1st deal, and I've tried it out myself.

With memory prices rising I can't find DDR3 desktop memory cheaper than this @ Play.com :-

PNY 6Gb (3 x 2 Gb) 1333MHz PC-10660 DDR3 240-pin DIMM for Desktop Computers

Specifications

3 x 2GB DIMM's
1333Mhz
DDR3
Fully PC-10660 Compliant
Unbuffered
JEDEC-Standard Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM)
Unbuffered
Case Latency 9
Power Supply: 1.5V ± 0.2V
Pure Power and Ground Planes
Gold PCB connector
Description

DDR3 is the next generation of DDR memory. DDR3 memory features faster speeds, greater bandwidth, lower power consumption and enhanced thermal performance.


***NOTE - Even though the description on the Play.com site says they are 200-pin DIMM's I can confirm that it's a typo. I've ordered and received 240-pin DIMM's, (there are no 200-pin DDR3 DIMM's anyway, laptop DDR3 is 204-pin).***

I ordered these last Wednesday and they arrived in the post this morning. Obviously the postal strike may affect delivery time, I'm not sure what contingency plans Play.com have.

Nice find, congrats on posting your first deal.

hi, will these fit the ddr2 slots anyone please ?...thank you kindly.

ok 'computerman'...thank you sir.

Thats a great price for that RAM, HOT!!! I paid I think £50 for 4GB DDR2 not long ago
#8
Arnt these optimised for i7 setups?

One for the geeks ; Does the speed of your DDR3 Ram make any difference to overclocking an i5 / i7 ? Unlinking the mem/fsb is usually an option on new motherboards, but what gives the best result?

DDR2 prices are not related to DDR2, DDR2 will be more expensive than DDR3 soon.
#11
Note about PNY,

not bashing these but i have bought PNY DDR2 800mhz and 1050mhz from play before and twice bitten, the memory is generic and very generic at that, i have found to actually get it top run stable using a gigabyte 1200mhz board copatable from 667 to 1200mhz it will only run at 667mhz.

my advice would be if buying cheap at least buy kingston. but like i said i havent tested PNY DDR3

You really don't need high speed ram for i5/i7.

Btw if you need the same ram but with cas 7 and ocz lifetime warranty for almost the same price then look up ebay item 180422334223 :whistling:

Why not?

Whats the point having a super duper processor (multi core etc) which idles more coz of slow memory..

Unless you are running a 64bit operating system or Linux, whats the point of buying 6gigabytes neither Vista or Windows 7 (32bit) support more than 4

But there is this..

Which is a highly cpu bottleknecked game. If the resolution was higher, shifting the bottleneck back onto the GPU, im sure there would hardly be any difference.

AND, if you look its the bottom ones that are really slow, I don't think anyone sells Cas 10/11 ram, and I dont think anyone sells DDR3 800 anymore.

Note that this particular offer is 3 x 2Gb modules - so good for the original i7 chips which like triple-channel memory.
#17
I know the speed of DDR3 doesn't make that much difference, I was just wondering would it be a limiting factor when overclocking your CPU .
#18
Last time I got some faulty modules. Took me a few weeks to find out this was my problem. When I contacted PLAY to try & return them they said I couldn't because it was longer than their 20 day policy or whatever pathetic time it is. I said "What about the UK distance selling act, you have to take them back as they're faulty"? PLAY said "We're based offshore and don't have to adhere to the UK distance selling act". :x

Nice

Pity the poor people who buy things like TVs from them!

They come with a 10-year warranty. Have you tried contacting PNY here :-

2Gigs is more than enough for anyone

I paid £68.04 for Crucial 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-10600 Memory a month or two ago. Why has it suddenly gone up? It normally gradually goes down!

Although a couple of years ago I bought 4GB DDR2 for £140 when the 2GB sticks were rare. About 3 months later it cost £35 :(

3. They do not support more then 3 GB.

Actually... a 32Bit OS can address 4GB of memory. Unfortunatly you need to take video memory into account too. So if you have 4GB of Ram and a 512MB video card, you will only see 3.5GB of memory.

well you could buy and install memory that has been rated faster but after 1333 the returns do not make for good value. better keeping the RAM at stock and just overclocking the "FSB".

EDIT: oh wait, benchmarks above illustrate my post. this is a good price. did anybody notice DDR3 shoot up in price on i5 launch?

If you are building a computer right now or have a computer less that two years old chances are your cpu is 64 bit and so there is no reason not to have Windows 7 64bit or a 64bit Linux OS installed. So yes, 6gig of ram would be fully used!
#26
i thought the lower 1.5v sticks were for i7's?

so does this mean you could damage something by putting this RAM into a dual channel set up?

All the current Core i7/i9 CPUs support a recommended max of 1.65V with 1.5V being the nominal voltage for the on die memory controller regardless of the socket type or whether they are dual or triple channel.
These newer lower voltage sticks may well also work in older LGA775 boards although not many supported DDR3. If they aren’t compatible they won’t damage the boards.
What you can’t do is the use the older high voltage DDR3 at high speeds in the i5/i7 boards as they required too much voltage. You could run them at slower speeds provided they are stable at 1.65V.

There are reasons to not use Windows x64 although I’d recommend it provided you don’t have any hardware or software that is incompatible that you can’t or don’t want to replace.
Windows x64 can utilise all 6GB but that doesn’t mean that it would be fully used as you suggested as that really depends on how you use your PC. For light to medium home use currently 6GB is overkill and you’ll see no benefit over using 4GB or possibly less.

:)I'm just wondering if many people realise that although some boards will recognise these amounts of memory, their operating system won't and M$'s hardware support for 64bit operating systems has always been shakey to put it optimistically!

It's improved in leaps and bounds in the last couple of years. The last 4 or 5 windows installs I have done have all been 64bit. Most modern hardware now has 64bit drivers available Windows 7 makes good use of ram above 4GB if you go 64bit. :thumbsup:

MS's hardware support for 64bit operating systems has always been shakey to put it optimistically!

The issue isn't Microsoft's more of a matter of hardware vendors in the past being reluctant to write 64 bit drivers for their own hardware. This has changed significantly since the days of XP x64 and with Windows 7 it seems as if 64 bit is the default option at least for Dell who don’t even generally seem to offer Win 7 32 bit as an option.
You can bet that Dell wouldn’t do that if they weren’t confident that the driver issue had been properly addressed. Microsoft has forced hardware manufacturers to develop both 32 and 64 drivers if they are to get their drivers certified by MS which is why the 64 bit driver issue is mainly a thing of the past. Of course some hardware won’t work with Win7 or Vista regardless of whether you are using 32 or 64 bit versions.

works like a dream! :-D
