Ok, playing that same old song. Too broke to get a "real" upgrade so I figure get a gig of ram would be a good place to start for WoW...

I have a Asus A7A-266 board.
I can do 2x512 or one 1024 dimm.

184 pin, ddr, pc 2100......

Man, I've been out of the upgrade loop for so long I don't know what is what..

I'm in Canada so I dont know if there are area specific deals or not...

My searching doesn't turn up much at all..

Thanks

Oh, and if anyone has this type of ram and want to sell it please let me know.

Crucial.com might be a good place to start...you can find the specific RAM for you mobo here.  they sell quality memory, and the prices are usually pretty good...not to mention that they ship worldwide.  i've ordered from them in the past and have always been very pleased with my purchases.

don't forget to swing by pricewatch.com to find the baseline prices for your RAM.  

I've also never had a problem with crucial and they occasionally have deals...

I would also check techbargains.com and tech-deals.net if there are any specials...

be very careful with Pricewatch though, in no way, shape or form would I recommend getting cheap (generic) ram. Ram is a critical piece of hardware for stability, and I wouldn't recommend skimping on it.  I like Crucial, or get Corsair or Kingston from Newegg.

I totally agree.   Use pricewatch only as a tool to see the price range, and make sure to scroll down to see what more reputable vendors (such as newegg) are charging for quality RAM of your needed type to estabilsh your baseline.

Sorry for any confusion.

RAM
« Reply #8 on: October 25, 2004, 04:43:32 AM »

hi,

i realize this may be too late, but just in case:

i'm afraid i don't remember if they carry all kinds of ram or just laptop, but i got a good deal here:   [email protected]  

it was a while ago, and all i could find was an email with their address, but i believe that's how they do business anyway - you write them with exactly what you need the ram for and they send you an estimate.

i got laptop ram (small amount, maybe 128) for half what Gateway was going to charge, i don't remember if it was one of the brands other people recommended, but i know it worked fine.  

if anyone knows anything about them that's bad,  please post, because i'll be going back for some for a different laptop.

thanks!
