I've been watching the price of this for a while now. It is normally £22.99 but has gone back down to £17.99. I don't know why DDR RAM has to be so expensive seeing as it is old technology now. At least it will breathe some life back into my PC!

Add something worth £14.02 or more if your buying 2 sticks (I added Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 for the PS3) and get a further £5 off when using promotional code CREST081 before the end of the month.

Don't forgot 6% Quidco also...

Good price for branded RAM - Non Branded value RAM is £1 cheaper...

and the best thing is that pcworld will 110% price match play for these so if you pop into your local pc world you can get these for a few quid cheaper still :)

I would rather support the GENUINE low price seller (ie Play) than a store which makes the customer find the cheaper price before giving a good deal.
PC world are pants!

Coincidentally, I bought 2 sticks yesterday at the reduced price from play.com. I would rather have purchased this from a shop just in case it's incompatible with my motherboard; the manual and others suggest it should work with the MSI 6743, although PC World may not be as reasonable.

Hasn't the £5 voucher expired now?
#5
Voucher is £5 off £50 so no good if you're buying a pair.
#6
Bought some off Play.com recently for £16.99 a stick, free delivery included.

Damnit, I keep making mistakes. Sorry. :p
#10
anyone seen any DDR ram for laptops about???
#11
Its cheap because its 'high density'
Make sure you don't need 'low density' or you'll be snookered!
#12
dammit. Why do these deals always crop up hours after I've bought from somewhere else? I only ordered some from ebuyer at lunchtime...

Good find though. I may get some more to make while it is cheap:thumbsup:

Play.com usually have some good value offerings.... I've bought laptop RAM from them with no issues and it was v.cheap.
#14
This is a fantastic deal for anyone wanting to upgrade an older PC utilising DDR RAM.

I will suggest this to the gf's family because they have a Dell PC with a 3GHz P4 but only 512MB. 1.5GB would make it a nicely rounded machine.

Memory Type DDR SDRAM

Number of Memory Slots 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs

Supported RAM speeds 400 MHz

Max Supported RAM 2 GB

My Abit iS7-v motherboard supports that RAM (PC3200) but only quotes DDR...the play.com RAM is DDR...would DDR2 RAM be better and would DDR2 work?

Thanks

Go here: http://www.crucial.com/# to find out exactly which type you need. DDR2 is not compatible with DDR though.

:thumbsup: good value

Great Price cheers, Just ordered one :)

Didn't see this thread but got them to price match the other day when i stumbled upon the play.com price, they wouldn't sell me two sticks though!

It might even be worth telling them to buy 2x and taking the 512mb stick out. I bought an extra gig a month or so ago to go along with 1x512mb and 2x256mb sticks. My PC actually ran SLOWER with all the mixed brands :)


+1 on that

Mixed brands/sizes is never a good idea.. You'll usually run at the lowest perfoming component's speed.

I'd always get RAM in sets of 2 (dual channel, if you can get it)
#21
WOuld just like to add, i went back to PC world today ( a different branch)

they were very unhappy about matching the price, were making a song and a dance about it (got even worse when i said i wanted the 10% too :D)

The chap pointed out that the play.com version has different packaging - fair enough I suppose, but they were talking about ringing head office tomorrow.

Ultimately, their price promise is a hollow sham, their business model works on DSG exclusive versions that have very few differences (ie. Samsung TVs), but due to the different model number (sometimes just one digit), they can refuse to price match.

Thought it was ironic they were complaining about me knocking £27.90 off their product, while we were all stood next to £14.99 PC Line USB A-B cables!

Then you're basically paying £18 for 512MB, so no, they'll be fine with 1.5GB ;-)

Running in dual-channel mode will give you a tiny boost that you'll see in benchmarks and not much else, really. Unless your Mobo had problems with that RAM config but that's a different story...

No i'm not saying buy two sticks solely to utilize the DDR, but moreso the fact that the OLD 512MB stick will cause the PNY 1GB to run at the same speed as it. Get me? My PC ran slower and was very unstable after doing what you're suggesting...just thought i'd let you know :)


It doesn't really work like that. Your old RAM should match your system's FSB speed. Using faster RAM won't actually increase performance as the FSB will still be the same whether you're using faster RAM or or RAM to match your system's FSB. Unless you overclock the system, of course.

If your old RAM was miss-matched and was too slow for your system's FSB in the first place, only then would it make any real difference.

Like I said though, compatibility issues are another matter entirely but I find this is rare and only happens if it's a fussy Motherboard or one of the sticks was low quality in the first place.

This is now £15.99 delivered. Even less if you can get PCWorld to price-match.
