Wanted - Cheap memory for an old PC

My dad's after some memory for his rather old PC.
Told him I'd ask here on the off-chance anyone has any of the right type going spare.

The type he needs is : PC133 SDram
Ideally, he's looking to get 2 x 512MB (168pin) modules.

If anyone can help, let me know what you've got and how much you'd want for it (including postage), thanks.

EDIT - Just clarified with my dad that he ONLY wants 512MB sticks (he already has 2 x 256MB sticks and wants to upgrade them).

I have got a 64MB PC133, which you can have for £1 delivered - if that helps.
#2
got 5 strips here.

2 x 256
2 x 128
1 x 64

all from desktops.

cannot test though but dont see any reason why they will not work as were o.k when removed.

you can have the lot for £8 delivered.

I`ll even post first, you try them and if o.k pay me :thumbsup:

Cheers for the replys.

I assume my dad already has smaller memory "modules" in his PC and he's looking to upgrade, hence why he's asking for 512MB ones.

I'll ask him tomorrow though and post back if he's interested in any of the offers so far.

I have some 512Mb pc133 sticks (bout 3) in my spare machine which is due an upgrade, they are high density tho so best post your mainboard/machine details for help with compatibility.
would want about £30 each but may be interested in trades

Just spoke to my dad and he does only want 512MB sticks/modules (sorry I didn't clarify that in my first post but I wasn't aware at the time).
He's got 2 memory slots in his PC and they both currently have 256MB sticks so he's looking to upgrade them.

maddogb : Thanks, but that is far, far more than my dad would be prepared to pay (and seems way out of step with the prices other people here have been offering).

Haha, the price of those sticks are probably more than the PC is worth! :?
#10
£30!!!!!!!!!!!! You pick this type of memory for under £8 from ebay (delivered!)
#11
"Haha, the price of those sticks are probably more than the PC is worth! "

That's what I thought and when my I told my dad about it he thought it was a joke, and commented that he could buy a much more modern (than the one he owns) refurbished PC base-unit for about the same price (ie. around £60 - same price as maddobd is asking for 2 x 512MB sticks) from the likes of BigPockets etc.

Anyway, anyone else got some spare 512MB sticks at a sensible price ?
#12
I think I have some will check and let you know.
#13
I've got a couple of sticks, they are PC100 but should work just fine, £20 del?
#14
"I've got a couple of sticks, they are PC100 but should work just fine, £20 del?"

Thanks, but that still seems steep to me. I'm pretty sure my dad had something like a tenner in mind for 2 x 512MB sticks (I'll check with him though).

I have a pretty modern PC that I bought new from PC-World a year ago and a few months back I paid £14 for a 1GB stick new & delivered.
Surely the same amount of memory, used, and for a much older PC should be cheaper ?
#15
Yes but that new memory is readily available off the shelf, as you can see, coming by the older stuff is not easy or that cheap
