View Full Version : Where Can I Find a stick of 1GB PC2700 DDR?
09-27-2003, 04:16 AM
I've been looking around and can seem to only find 1GB kits for DDR RAM. Each of these are usually 2x256MB instead of a single stick. I found one but it was some generic I had never heard of. Where can I get some decent name brand DDR that is 1GB single stick?

Most of the 1gb pc2700 stuff on the market will not work in nvidia nforce2 or intel motherboards. All the generic stuff is bad.
Mushkin makes a 1gb- $300. Hynix too. Only name brand stuff will work. A lot of these pricewatch.com places say they have ram that does not exist, it's fake. I called a place that said they had 1gb samsung pc2700 unregistered. Samsung doesn't make it. You may be better off getting as much name brand 512mb corsair straight off thier site. There is so much bad ram out there. Make sure you get a real part number and check it out on the website of the brand maker. Intel also has a list of modules by maker and part number that have passed their tests. Anything else and you are risking getting screwed. You have to be that careful.
Even if it is for amd, I would only buy ram that is on this page.

Here (http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator/PartsInfo.asp?ktcpartno=KVR333X64C25/1G) is a direct link to Kingston's webpage for 1GB DDR-333 (PC2700) RAM. This is some good stuff, but it's expensive ($799). It's a single stick, 128MX64, CL2.5, 400mil, TSOP, double-sided, gold with a lifetime warranty.
Corsair only makes 512MB sticks
Here (http://www.mushkin.com/epages/Mushkin.storefront/3f75119102f63962273fc0a801050625/Product/View/990980) is a direct link to Mushkin's webpage for 1GB DDR-333 (PC2700) RAM. This is also a prety decient loking DIMM, less expensive than the Kingston ($315). It's also a single stick, 128MX64, CL2.5-3-3, 400mil, TSOP, double-sided, but I don't know what the warranty is.

wowie... I guess I'll stick with 512MB for now... hahaha, I haven't done much of anything that is graphics intensive since I totally did a reverse of majors. Heh, I guess it's all good. Thanks folks.

just pick up two of these: http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?DEPA=1&submit=Go&description=N82E16820144202
lots cheaper (and it's good stuff too), plus if one goes out, you still have the other one, whereas if the gig stick burns out you're dealing with significant slowdown while you wait for replacement RAM;)
