View Full Version : Memory question
09-30-2005, 10:01 AM
I just bought a Dell 9100 and I'm looking at buying some additional memory. I'm looking for a 1gb 533mhz pc4200 and on cosair's website I see that they have a couple of different sticks so i'm not really sure which one to buy...Links underneath and any help would be great...Thanks in advance
This is specifically for the 9100 it appears?
Is this general memory and will it work in my machine?

For a dell... I'd recommend buying Cruicial RAM. They have a configurator to give you exactly what you need.
Also... for Dell's, I'd highly doubt that you'd need "top of the line" memory like some of the upper Corsair memory (as I doubt that they are using the more expensive RAM in selling their systems). However you do want to ensure compatibility, just in case. Crucial will give you that guarantee...

Alright, next where to get a good deal?

I guess the better question is... how much you trying to spend?
Crucial memory is a "good deal"... but if you want to find a better price than what they have on their website, then check by ZipZoomFly.com or Newegg.com... they sell Crucial memory at times at less than what you can find it on their website.
EDIT: Just checked... guess ZZF and NE don't have this particular module in stock for Crucial and it's like $119.30 at Crucial. Here is the link:

newegg = best prices, fast shipping, good returns.
crucial.com = guaranteed compatability, they will help you with trouble shooting.
If you buy one of the reputable brands (Crucial, Corsair, Mushkin, Kingston (iffy)), you are almost guaranteed good performance and usually easy RMA for bad sticks. There might be a few more "good" brands now.
I got the same dell as you, and i bought 2x512 MB of Corsair ddr2 value select and i'm really happy with it. I doubt that i'd notice any performance gain had i spent more on one of the "performance" ram kits.
