View Full Version : Suggestion for SDRAM modules

02-16-2001, 03:31 PM
hi, i am setting up my first pc (hope not to fry it). I am dealing with memory now, precisely 168 pin SDRAM 133MHz. Does anyone have a good advice? Kingston, Micron, Viking are these all good names? any brand I should NOT buy? what about www.premiersystem.com? (http://www.premiersystem.com?) I read of someone in this forum that purchased memory from them and seem to be very happy, their memory is in fact very low priced and they claim that each DIMM is fully functional and tested before shipping.
Thanks for the hints!

There arent too many actual mfg's of SDRAM...most of it is re-labeled anyway......the guarantee is my most important ingredient! I look for 1 yr as a minimum....but any more than that is hard to come by unless you pay through the nose....RAM usually goes out RIGHT AWAY or lasts a good number of years in my experience.

I've had good luck using Crucial (subsidiary of Micron), Kingston ValueRam, and (more recently) Premier. I'm not a system overclocker, and nothing I do is remotely close to being "mission critical". http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/smile.gif

Might want to look at these sites if you have not purchased the memory yet.
WWW.tigerdirect.com (http://WWW.tigerdirect.com) and www.buy.com (http://www.buy.com)

Both of these are offering 128mb PC 133 SDram Cas 3 for under 50.
Or the 256MB PC 133 for under 90.

Both offer the Kingston Value Ram.

Good Luck on the machine! http://www.PCGuide.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
