I know there are some good RAM gurus out there. I've decided to upgrade my RAM so I can play WoW after graduation. Yeah, I got sucked in, should be fun though. Anyway, apparently I have expensive RAM, it's PC800. I have 512 and want to bump up to 768 or maybe 1024. Toader has already helped me out a bit and it seems ebay is my best option. But I want to know for sure from some of the smart people here, is PC800 the only kind of RAM I can buy? It's hella expensive. :( And if I'm buying RAM from ebay, is there anything I should look out for?
Why Ebay? RAM prices have come down quite a bit in recent weeks, and you should get it from somewhere like Crucial.com or this place so you know it's (a) new and (b) under warranty if something goes loopy with it.
If you started college in the Fall of 2001 and bought your computer then, most likely you have the dreaded RAMBUS in your system, which is really expensive. I'm stuck in the same boat, but have totally given up games on my computer. Try Newegg, that's where I looked before I decided to give up.
Yep, I've got a buddy in the same boat as me. Looks like it's waiting for a good price on ebay time.
I saw a Dodge truck that had "Maximum Ramage" painted onto the door of the bed while I was on the highway. About an hour later, I stopped at a gas station and was going to tell my buddies who were with me about the lame car. Good thing I didn't because turns out the truck stopped at the same gas station and the dude was right behind me.
