Can't believe how cheap this RAM is, I bought this myself a couple of weeks ago to put in the new dual-core system I was building and it cost me a tenner more than this even with Google Checkout.

2GB kit that will run dual-channel for £48.84 delivered with Google Checkout, serious bargain.

It's been running great and would highly recommend it. OK, it's not the lowest latency stuff, but it easily covers my needs. Also you don't need to go messing about with your motherboard voltages to get this stuff to work well like some of the higher-end stuff.

Hi,
Do you have any idea what kind of ram I need for a Dell laptop...I love to change mine as my system runs way too slow for me

This is a wicked deal but I'm guessing its for desktop only ?

Yup, desktop only I'm afraid, although you should try running the free utility Everest Home majorgeeks.com/dow…tml which will tell you exactly what type of RAM (and everything else there) is in your laptop and you can then see what you need to upgrade. Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Oh, you could also run the Crucial memory upgrade utility too (crucial.com/), it will scan your system and tell you what you need to upgrade and (I think) how many slots you have free to put extra RAM into. Probably a lot simpler if you're fairly new to upgrading stuff, the one I suggested is a possibly a bit too geeky...but then I'm a bit of a geek...

you missed out

last ebuyer happy hour they did (less than a week ago) you could grab the exact same ram for sub £35 for two gigs. although you needed to buy 2x 1gb separately

I'm surprised that it was that low, about £17 per 1GB module including delivery? The deal that was posted was for just under £23 per 1GB module and then moved about a bit but never less than £21 each.

The reason I got the kit was that I wanted to be 100% sure that they would run as dual-channel. Two separate modules can normally work dual-channel, but the matched kits are guaranteed to.

I bought some of this at the weekend and installed it yesterday in my Dell 5150. Appears to work a treat - doesn't make my machine any faster, but will certainly help when I have Word, Excel, Windows etc. all open at the same time. A great find.

Please will people state the number of pins in the description. This RAM would be perfect for me if it had 200 pin and not 240.

DDR2 is always 240 pin, so it is in the description...

Yeah, the Corsair is definitely better than the Kingston and it overclocks much better too. Those looking for RAM should wait till the Corsair is back in stock at eBuyer. Thats what I did ;-)

it is already in stock! ebuyer.com/UK/…116


£23.57 per GB after Google checkout and inc delivery


or £47.14 for 2gigs

[SIZE=2]I want some of this for a new system i want to build but trying to wait a bit in the hope that prices will come down more. Does anyone know when the google checkout £10 off thing ends? Link anyone? Oh and while I'm asking off topic questions, is there a link anywhere showing all the merchants taking part? Thanks[/SIZE]

would the Corsair work in a Dell Dimension E520??

thanks bjmcghee

TG - prices for what? The RAM isnt going to come down in price anymore than it has. GC ends end of this month I believe.

Is this RAM compatable with the cheap Dell desktop posted on here?

Good deal, I brought these seperately on ebuyer, about 2 weeks ago I think, total price was just under £46.

Have to agree with mr.shed, the prices surely can't come down any lower and its worth taking advantage of GC whilst its about. This is literally half the price it was in January, and its not like 2GB sticks are commonplace or close to this in value yet. The Corsair XMS stuff was probably slightly better value still when it was available but this is still an excellent price for a matched pair.

As for the price crash of memory, I think you can partly thank Windows Vista and its high memory requirements for that. Microsoft is very influencial.

Like the username Vegeta! I know what its from.
