I’m not sure but Play seem to be having RAM deals a lot at the moment and this is the third that I’ve posted this week and the best one I didn’t post as it only lasted about 12 hours. That was for 6GB OCZ DDR3 1,333 for £78 which was a steal and is on its way to me. :-D
Many of these Play deals have a short half life so it’s best not to hang around.

Voted hot. I've been waiting for RAM to come down lower than £20 per GB!!

It scares me how much DDR2 went up in the past few months, i remember when it was alot less and ddr3 was crazy expensive. I managed to get a set of 2x2GB Crucial Ballistics pc6400 Cas4 for £35 at ebuyer when it was on offer and it was the best ram ive had tbh, runs at 1000Mhz Cas4 on less than stock volts!.

I dont know about this model because its already Cas5 i assume its the bottom line right? However, Geil are well regarded and since this price is pretty good for the time, its hot!.

That’s a crazy price for 4GB of Ballistix as it’s almost always going to over-clock like stink. Even so, 1GHz CAS4 at less than stock voltage is very good. :thumbsup:
What voltage did you use in the end?

You can save at least £15 on this by buying on ebay.

I got the same deal of Ballistix and wish I had got more for my windows 7 64bit. Was amazed how quick ram prices shot up.

DDR2 is pretty cheap on ebay, it's just if you buy new it's expensive because there's probably limited supply as factories switch to producing DDR3, but there isnt limited supply in the used market.

So if I buy second hand at auction with no warranty it’s potentially cheaper than buying new with a lifetime warranty.
You learn something everyday even on the last day of the year.

Why do you need a warranty with RAM? It either works or it doesnt, after it's been fitted it aint going to break unless you do something stupid.

Personally I don’t have a problem buying second hand but not everyone uses eBay which is why mentioning eBay prices is not exactly relevant. You could mention eBay prices in relation to many deals but it’s just not the same thing.
Still there’s no harm in mentioning it as not everyone knows about eBay I suppose.

To my knowledge the Ballistixs range tend to be very good overclockers :P.
I run the pair at 1.85v at the moment and IIRC they are 1.9 or 2.1v stock. I have had them at 1200Mhz before hand but i didnt need the extra speed so kept it lower with less volts.

I brought this RAM 2 years ago for my PC.

Great reliable,good speed,

About 18 months back I bought some PNY memory from Play. That packed up and wished I had paid the extra for a brand with lifetime warranty. Lesson learnt, I'll try and buy lifetime memory from now on.

Yep, wish I had bought more RAM when I built my computer two years ago, I thought prices would come down further, instead they have almost doubled

eBay RAM is notorious for the high rates of counterfeit products, you really don't know what you are getting

RAM isn’t like other PC components as it’s a traded commodity like oil/copper etc which is why memory prices can be very volatile and fluctuate a lot in both directions.
It got so cheap this year that it was being sold below cost which was never going to be sustainable so the price was always going to rise.

The PNY has a Lifetime warranty so as long as you can find your receipt (PNY will ask you to send a scanned copy) you can get it replaced directly with PNY.

So glad I managed to pick up some more RAM while I was back in the states last summer. Got my first 4GB from amazon (Kingston Hyper-X) for 40£ in February time.
In the summer I got 4x4GB (G-skill 1066mhz), for roughly 70£ for both sets. Can't believe how much they have gone up in price now.

i had to send photo proof to OCZ when my ram died
no issues and excellent service but just thought id mention that sometimes these companies do require proof

‘Temporarily out of stock’ but you can still place orders at this price which will be fulfilled provided they get more stock.
