Hello,

I recently bought a new PC however it only has 1 gig RAM, I read that i can make it 2 or 4 gig for only a few pounds.

If so, where is the cheapest place to buy from - ebay? How easy is it t fit - should i pay someone to get it fitted?

Thanks

I always use crucial and have never had a problem with their value memory http://www.crucial.com/, very easy to fit just make sure you get the correct memory for your computer.
#2
someone said ebay earlier. altho ive never checked. Ebuyer is quite cheap.
#3
2nd vote for Crucial here

You shouldn't need anyone else to fit it for you- it's pretty much the easiest thing you can do inside a computer, pop open the clips, ram it in (did you like what i did there?) and close the wee clips. job done.

I'd buy from a retail outlet. You have a warranty that way.

Fitting varies from a piece of wee wee to a complete pain - it all depends on how easy it is to get to the memory sockets in your particular machine.

Prices vary a bit, depending on exactly which type of memory you need (there's lots - check you get the rght type and speed)

But with 1G you've plenty for most things.

What do you expect to gain from increasing the size?

Not sure where you get that from but Vista will barely run on 1gb at an acceptable speed.
I'm using 1.92gb at the moment with just basic anti virus, msn, icq, outlook and this page open! Start using stuff like photoshop and 1gb is woefully slow.

Use crucial (Scan your system) to check what memory your motherboard will take (533,667,800)and then check ebuyer and scan and see it you can get 2gb matched kits there, look for geil, corsair and crucial with timings 4,4,4,12 should not be more than approx £30

Hope this helps
