Voted hot £34.95 in pcworld...

It's not really true thinking in this way because it obviously depends on the model of your laptop.:thinking:

[SIZE=1]This is desktop memory, but I take your point - your motherboard needs to be compatible & not everyone will need the slightly faster RAM.[/SIZE]

Hi. I've got a dell 8400 and I want to upgrade ram. There's also this for £12.99 on dvd.co.uk -will this be better?
Kingston ValueRAM - Memory - 1 GB - DIMM 240-pin - DDR II (DDR2) - 667 MHz / PC2-5300 - CL5 - 1.8 V - unbuffered - non-ECC

Thanks OP and if anyone can answer this.

2 x 1GB from Crucial for my PC = £32.88 (-10% Quidco = £30.82 = £15.41 each).

Should be noted that for the original post buying one item would cost £14.98, buying two items reduces the price per item to only £14.48.

Will it make much difference adding another 1gb ?
Running Vista -amd dual core 4000 and 1gb ram at present?

Catwoman, yes vista will like more ram to play with

I think it does significantly!!! The power of a computer = (mainly) processor speed + RAM amount + bus speed + operating system + HDD quality. Processor and bus speeds usually go together (mainboard that can accommodate modern processors would have high bus speed). HDD quality is usually measured in RPM (Rotation Per Minute) and is among limited choices (usually 5400 for laptop and 7200 for desktop). You can see clearly that the difference in RAM will play the most important role here.

In addition, even though 1G is enough for Vista, I've seen it's suggested somewhere that 2G is "sufficient" for Vista to run smoothly, especially with its Aero interface.

Cheers -thanks will get extra 1gb now.

How do you know what pin it is ?? 200 ,240 ???
Help please

catwoman

How do you know what pin it is ?? 200 ,240 ???Help please



200 pin SODIMM for a laptop, 240 pin DIMM for a desktop pc.

Be sure your machine can take this ram before you buy, 1gb of ram is nice but if your machine dont support it its worthless

Computer has 1gb DDR2 pc2 5300 667MHZ single channel in at the moment.
Do i put this right next to this when i buy it as i am fairly certain its the right one. Does that mean it will be dual channel memory in computer then !?
Thanks everyone -have repped everyone that helped.

Don't want to souind like a Crucial fanboy, but their site has a handy analysis tool that will tell you what kind of memory you need to upgrade. It will also suggest recommended upgrades.

Cheers
Simon

Catwoman, yes in the one next to it and it probably is dual channel. As Simon Wallace said, the crucial analysis tool is a good way to find out what you need to buy etc

Hi, great deal but can any one please help us with motherboards that can only take DDR ram and point to a hot deal on this :-(

The crucial tool told me wrong yesterday ,said only 512mb installed and i know for a fact there is 1gb !
Ordered this now -thanks voted hot.

Some computers only have single channel memory regardless of how many slots they have. I would download the small utility CPU-Z which will tell you a lot about your PC including how many RAM slots it has, how many are free and what is currently installed; cpuid.com/cpu…php

Thanks have done that now.
