Memory - What do I need
I need PC100 RAM 128MB and I would like to know a good place to get it from. I understand that not all PC100 memory is created the same, what do I need to lookout for when buying this type of RAM. Obvisously I want the best bang for my buck.

Finally, Ram is coming back down...

As far as brands, Micron and Samsung is really good.

As far as where to buy it, I usually just go to pricewatch, and get the best price (with shipping). A lot of places charge $20 to ship it to offset their costs. Is kinda lame when you consider how small a DIMM is to ship

Re: Memory - What do I need
I'd go to your local reseller - when you factor in the price of shipping, I don't think you'll save any money. I've had the generic PC100 10ns DIMM's that I bought from my reseller and had no problems whatsoever. Most of them are also now stocking PC133 for a slight premium - if you're investing in RAM, I'd get the PC133 as a bit of future-proofing. If you stick it into a system with a 100MHz FSB, the system will just clock the RAM down to the correct speed. I think the difference in price is just about $10 between the PC100 10 or 8ns and the PC133, which I think is clocked at 6 or 7 ns. Check around locally before you pay that $20 shipping charge for something that'll fit in an envelope ...

Re: Memory - What do I need

Some people say "Don't skimp on ram" since it can cause problems. My experience with no-name generic pc100 has been quite good, however. A friend of mine runs all his boxes, even servers with generic and has not had any hiccups (although they do run unix ..)

Anyways, don't spend a god aweful amount on ram. Usually generic should be fine, but look around for name-brand stuff like Lanik mentioned. If they're not all that much more, it'll be worth the extra cash if not for anything other than peace of mind.

btw - Ahz is selling a few dimms. I got dibs on the 128mb stick he's selling, but I believe he's got a 256mb stick too.

Re: Memory - What do I need
Stay away from 10ns PC100 SDRAM. Get 8 or 6ns. Go for name brand if you can. Definately check out www.pricewatch.com .

Re: Memory - What do I need
Talk to me Woo if you want a shtick O RAM. Its either Micron or NEC I believe, PC100, not to mention its ECC.

Hey Woo! saw that we have been bouncing back and forth between 2 and 3 on NG Stats for Domination.

Where do you play? Would like to bump into you and play

Woo has been playing on whatever DOM server I'm NOT on. Probably "The newbie house" server.

(j/k, man!)

Hehe...That must be why I never see him

Hmmm...Now that I think about it, I never see you either Wingz.

Re: Memory - What do I need
Hehe yeah, I suck at that game I use to play on UWRF or something like that and now I play on The Church of J3susF1sh.

Stop by sometime. Actually I see BubbleYum (She Rocks in UT) and Lanik every now and then on some of the DOM servers I play on.

I usually look at the players on a server before I join and If I see Wingnutz there I stay clear. I don't want him to do a McCarty on my Lemuix Arse. <grin>

Re: Memory - What do I need
If you read the NGstats FAQ, you get more points for fragging higher-ranked players than lower ranked. Therefore, it's highly doubtful he's fragging newbies
