Wow.... the timings even seem decent. Not overly fast mem but 2 gigs for $125 and not generic. Imo its a good deal but I'm not really up on the facts and specs of ddr2. There are alot more members here who could give you a more informed answer but wow I sure wish ddr1 was that cheap.

ya lol, I Just gave in and placed my order for them. Every review i've seen for them is positive which makes me happy, and ncix game me the express rma feature for $3 on them so if they do break they will send a replacment on air mail lol. Makes me sad knowing that its friday and unless purolators air delivery runs on weekend im not going to get untill tue or wed

And besides, my old ram was just some generic pc4200 ddr2 ram so this has to be better than it, if not somethings wrong lol.

Yeah, that's a great deal for DDR2 memory. If I wasn't so caught up on needing minimum of ddr2 800 I'd consider jumping right in.

What are you going to use it on? I thought you had a S939 rig (ddr1 only).
