Default DDR 1GB x 2: PC-2700 low density for desktop

Desktop: IBM NetVista - 8303-HCU

Seeking 2 x 1GB PC2700 CL2.5 Non-Parity DDR SDRAM - low density

Lenovo Support - Overview (United States and Canada) - NetVista 8303

I'd like to get 2 sticks compatible to this:

Lenovo Support - PC2700 SDRAM UDIMM Family Memory Upgrades - Overview

I noted that this is available on ebay for approx. $56 (w/ ratings @ 98%) incl. shipping so I'm looking for something cheaper, obviously.

Kijiji didn't look too promising.

If anyone is interested in selling their compatible RAM and don't mind being compensated with less $$, please send me a msg...

Thanks.

If I don't receive any messages from any sellers, I'll probably try RFD or look at assembling a LGA 775 system... I have mobo, case, video card... just need RAM and a CPU

Which should I do?

The IBM desktop is really sluggish running XP Pro and only has 512MB of RAM!

I had the same setup with 3gbs at one point, and even having 1gb of ram made it faster. XP was no problem.

I would suggest looking at a socket 775. If memory serves, there are plenty of options to upgrade the cpu, and a mobo with DDR2/DDR3 memory would likely be easier to find, faster, and possibly cheaper in the long run.

There are plenty of good deals in this BST section.

I actually think I have RAM like this at Home. I'll let you know.
