Need very low priced RAM for my old computer...
Hello...I need additional RAM for my 7 year old computer to see if it'll pick up speed and hope to find one for under $30 as I don't know how much longer it may last, although otherwise it works perfectly!
This is what was configured and recommended by online stores:
PC100 256MB SDRAM DIMM 168 Pin, 32 x 64, CL2, Unbuffered (dont need ECC), 3.3 Volt, Low Density (16x8) 16 chip.
This is my computer:
Dell Dimension XPS T450
Here's 2 out of tons other RAMS I searched to find the right one at an affordable price:
KAHLON Part #: KDEL786, $29 free ship:http://www.kahlon.com/itemdetailpg.asp?itemid=29840
ALLMEMORYUPGRADES.COM (Micron?) $37+5 = $42 http://www.allmemoryupgrades.com/pc100sdram.html
What's your opinion of Kahlon brand? And of Micron? Because allmemoryupgrades.com said to ask for Micron if I wanted it, when ordering. Many people strongly advised to buy ONLY brand name...while others swore by the generic... What to do??? All I know is that it took me a whole lot less time to buy my computer 7 years ago than this blessed little piece of metal!!! )
It will be most appreciated if anyone could give me some suggestions please? Thanks ever SO much! Adela

Micron is a chip maker, they're one of the best (Crucial).
Go to Crucial and push the "Scan My System" button to see what memory your system has.
