See here for a cheaper deal at www. eBuyer.com using Google Checkout.

thats not that cheap.

Its pretty cheap for DDR1 - but cant beat the ebuyer deal. Voted warm.

So where is it cheaper then (other than eBuyer using Google Checkout)?

That isn't cheap!

As DC says, point us somewhere cheaper other than ebuyer with google checkout?? I think you will find there isnt anywhere...

Total edit : I was thinking it was a 512mb stick, Apologies!

Surely that's expensive???

The faster stuff that has also been posted on hotukdeals is about half the price.

Thats DDR2 not DDR - wont physically fit the same slot. DDR is notoriously expensive, and this is a decent price for it.

Why is it so expensive? Surely it's old technology?

Who knows!

I've got an atlon 2500 which takes ddr400 so that'll work for that wont it?

What about my P4 3Ghz? Do you think I am lucky and that takes the cheaper ddr2?

Use Crucial's system scanner and it'll tell you the type of memory currently fitted in your pc. It will also tell you how many free memory slots you have and all upgrade scenarios open to you:

Ooooo gimme

Make sure you know if this is High or Low density memory and whether your motherboard can take it. The High Density stuff is usually about 20 quid cheaper for 1G because it is less compatible. If it is high density the only the following chipsets are recommended (according to a seller on eBay funky_giraffe_shop )

* NVidia NForce 3 or 4
* Intel 915P
* Intel 915PL
* Intel 915GV
* Intel 915G
* Intel 915GL
* VIA P4M800
* VIA PM800
* VIA PM800 PRO
* VIA PT800
* VIA PT800CE
* VIA K8T800
* VIA K8M800

[ps I doubt any sensible vendor that care about their good name will sell high density - maybe just an eBay cowboy thing - but worth knowing ]

high density is waste, it doesnt wont work on nforce3 250 btw

there's less of it around now because alot more manufacturing is geared for DDR2 but the demand is still there hence the price hikes.

thats nearly double of what it should be !

thats nearly double of what it should be !



Nope this is DDR not DDR2 as mentioned in previous post. 1G or DDR is between £45 and £60
eg crucial.com/uk/…40B

1G DDR2 Starts at about 28 upwards?

I was under the impression that DDR400 was... Well... DDR400. Am I then wrong to think that any old DDR400 RAM will work on my system even though that's what I have installed now?

Thanks, LD!

My motherboard is a ASUS K8V SE Deluxe if that's any help.

DDR and DDR2 Ram are different beasts. For one thing, they have a different number of pins (the gold bits), DDR has 184 and DDR2 has 240. Yes you definately need older DDR RAM, not DDR2 memory in your Asus motherboard. Confusingly, you can get 400mhz DDR and DDR2 Ram but the only similarity is their speed.

According to the Asus website, your mobo accepts:

3 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 3GB un-buffered ECC and non-ECC PC3200/PC2700 / PC2100 DDR SDRAM memory

It is very annoying that DDR is much more expensive than DDR2 but you'll just have to live with it. In the long term, DDR will get relatively more expensive as DDR2 becomes cheaper so the difference will become even more apparent. My mobo takes SDRAM so I'm in a worse position (512mb is £31 on Ebuyer).

7dayshop have 512mb PC3200 DDR for £17.99 + delivery. I think that's about the cheapest I've seen.

Hi,

I did the Crucial scan thing, and this is what I got:

Currently installed memory:

512MB
DDR2 PC2-4100
512MB
DDR2 PC2-4100
EMPTY

EMPTY


Each memory slot can hold DDR PC3200,DDR PC4000 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*

Is it DDR2 or DDR?

Is it DDR2 or DDR?



It's plain old DDR. I think I'm looking at around £45+ per gig from what I've seen so far but would anyone say that the make of RAM makes much difference as well?

Cheers, LD!
