so you need ddr3?

first thing i do is look up fs in here or where you know the sellers.

if nothing shows up, wait for a sale unles you really have to. but seriously, 1333-1600 6 gig kits used. just wait it out. i missed 6 sticks of 1gb 1333 @ 100 bucks lol because the guy didnt ship/was too far lol
