Default Computer advice

I am looking for a RAM card for my HP. Eventually planning on getting a whole new puter, but a cheap upgrade will do for now.
Anyway, I trying to see where I can get the best deal for a pc 3200 DDR card, probably 512 MB. I have only 128 right now and it just aint cuttin it. I tried Newegg.com, any other suggestions? Anyone got one for sale here?
Thanks

I'd trust my life with NewEgg, other than that you can always try Comp USA, last time I went, they had some pretty good deals, even though they didn't have the selection

NewEgg is a great place to go, but it'* always a little more money. However, you are guaranteed top notch service if there are issues. I'd go with them.

As for the memory itself, stick with Corsair. They have a lifetime warranty. I burnt out $200 worth of DDR 400 and it was replaced with no issues.

huh??? Newegg cost more... sense when.. i mean yeah maybe a few things can be somtimes cheaper somwhere eles, but Neweg prices most of the time cant be beat... that have the market, they ship over 10,000 orders a day, most other places buy form them


Corsair is not the only brand thats good and cheap alot of other brands are good also.

I've had really good luck with Kingston memory. I personally wouldn't trust it to run a mission critical server, but the company I work for does (and they're one of the biggest e-commerce companies there is). But I've never had a problem on my personal computers with them.

And they have a niffvty little search engine on their site to determine the specific part number recommendd for your system.
