Great Deal from Play.Com these things go for £49.99 each but you can get 2 for half the price of the RRP of 1.

Top it off free delivary as well this deal is immense.

This has been posted before. Play have been selling at this price for a few months. Not exactly immense, but it is useful to get a reminder for people who haven't seen it before. Thanks.

EDIT: I thought this was laptop RAM - at this price for desktop 1GB, look elsewhere (see below for links)

Immense?

You can get a matched pair of OCZ (2x1GB = 2GB) DDR2 6400 (800MHZ) for £25.54 from Ebuyer.

Makes it 22p cheaper per module than your immense deal, for faster, better quality modules.

Isn't that desktop memory..?

Is this good for upgrading an Asus eeePC?

Hah! Yes, just noticed that. :oops: You are right then, this IS a cold deal. £12.99 for 1GB desktop RAM? No thanks - no time to look for others, but your link is simply one of many that are cheaper (7dayshop too probably). Apols Anarchist! :thumbsup:

NP, easily done

Agreed, you can get these cheaper most places, mine was just an example before competition ensures

When you add the postage it actually costs more. It’s faster RAM but many older motherboards only support DDR2-667 so there’s no benefit to running DDR2-800 unless it runs at lower latency at 667MHz and your system allows you to set the memory timings manually.
So for many people they might as well save the £3 or so and buy this although it will have a lower re-sale value.

Sigh, here comes the pedant brigade! As I said, if you'd care to read, firstly that was just an example, there are loads of places you can get this cheaper than the OP.

Then, there may not be any benefit performance wise to people owning DDR2-800, currently. However all motherboards will happily work with it. Not sure why on earth you think you need to set the timings manually, as thats just plain rubbish.

£3 or so? Delivery is £2.58, which makes it £2.14 more including delivery, or less if, like most people, you're ordering it along with something else. Which is worth it considering it'll be more likely to retain its value, and still be usuable in future generations (until DDR3 actually becomes remotely sensible), saving you the cost of replacing it on your next PC upgrade. There have been IP35+ chipset boards available for a while now that MUST have PC6400+

Hi, it hardly seems pedantic to be pointing out that for people that are just ordering a couple of sticks of RAM to upgrade an older motherboard that this is cheaper than the RAM you linked to. It’s not easy to get branded RAM for less than this price when you include postage and Quidco. If you know of a cheaper deal then please post it so people may benefit.

I haven’t made myself clear enough. If you could run the OCZ DDR2-800 CL5 at DDR2-667 CL4 then it would offer more performance than the Kingston DDR2-667 CL5.
Since the SPD settings for the OCZ will very likely be CL5 at 667MHz you would need to manually set the latency to CL4 in the BIOS. Most pre-built systems don’t allow changing the memory timings in the BIOS so the OCZ would be stuck on CL5.

What’s an IP35+ chipset? The Intel P35 chipset supports DDR2-667 and higher and I’m not aware of any Intel desktop chipsets that require a minimum of DDR2-800. Not sure about AMD boards!

cheaper deal? Fine, I'll pick the second site on my list of loads of them.

Scan. 1GB Micron DDR2-800, £11.74 including vat each. Use one of the free delivery options. Would you like me to point out any other cheaper/better offers? there are loads of them.

Can't even be bothered with the rest of your post tbh, you're boring me now.

I’m aware that there is cheap unbranded memory which the Scan stuff is which is why I specifically stated that it was a good price for BRANDED memory; some people are wary of unbranded RAM.

So what exactly is this IP35+ chipset that supports DDR2-800 as a minimum? Or did you make an error and it’s ‘boring’ to admit it?

Micron = unbranded? Lol?

Micron = Crucial.

Micron = unbranded? Lol? Micron = Crucial.


FYI, unbranded means that the RAM sticks don’t carry a brand; it doesn’t mean that the RAM chips themselves are unbranded. RAM chips invariably carry the Manufacturer’s name that’s normal. The sticks you mentioned use Micron chips but they are sold as unbranded.

What a complete load of tosh tbh.

What a complete load of tosh.


Such an attitude. :roll:
When memory is listed as being Major as is the Scan stuff you mentioned it generally refers to unbranded memory. As an example look at Microdirect. Maybe the stuff you listed isn’t unbranded but if that’s the case it will be a rare exception so do forgive me if I have got it wrong. :

Now perhaps you will either enlighten me as to the mysteries of the IP35+ chipset or have the humility to admit your error. :oops:

You got me thinking that this would be a bargain if it is Micron branded RAM and therefore should be posted as a deal. So I phoned Scan and they said that it is unbranded and I was told that it might not even use Mircon chips. i.e it's standard unbranded Major RAM. The term Major means that the chips are from a Major supplier which could be Micron or similar but the sticks are put together by a third party and they are unbranded.
He also said that he didn’t recommend this RAM as it hasn’t been tested for compatibility.
Just as I thought as it seemed too cheap to be branded RAM and Micron don’t usually make desktop DDR2 RAM under the Micron name.
