Yeah, but these are a matched pair which you need to use if you want to guarantee dual-channel use. I bought this RAM from Ebuyer earlier this year when it was around £45 and it's served me very welll in dual-channel mode!

If I bought 2 pairs (4gb) of these will I be able to use them in dual channel?

Its been said many times, but remember Vista only sees 4Gb if you have ths 64 bit version, it will see between 3Gb and 3.5Gb if youre on the 32-bit version of Vista.

Am I right in saying that these wont work unless your motherboard supports DDR2????

Yup, a DDR motherboard will not support DDR2 as it uses different voltages, has a different number of contacts, etc.

It's cheaper at ]DVD.co.uk - only £12.99 per 1Gb module plus £2.99 postage, giving a total of £28.97

Pay the extra couple of quid & buy a matched pair. Just not worth the risk.

I repeatedly see it said here that Vista can only see 3Meg of ram. That maybe true but can't you set (not default) Vista 16bit so that anything above this is seen as a drive for storing temporary files etc which makes the whole system run faster than if they were being written to disk? The extra bit if buying 4Meg is thus not wasted.

same stick size, same manufacturer, same serial number...

should be fine as a matched pair.

you can tweak vista to use a full 4gb according to custom pc.

...as far as i know btw

3meg or 4meg wouldnt be able to run a modern day OS
