    Re: Upgrade advice

    Your linky says your board will support DDR2 667...

    I grabbed the DDR2 800 version of this just before xmas.. Very impressed and a bargain price tbh

    Or Scan have 2GB Corsair Value Select DDR667 on today only for 15.53 (cant link you direct, but http://www.scan.co.uk/TodayOnly/Index.aspx)

    'Nout wrong with two lots of either if your not an mad overclocker.

    Had a look on eBuyer but nothing amazingly cheap and by the time you add on postage, gets silly.

    Play stuff really is a steal! http://forums.hexus.net/current-barg...-play-com.html <-- thread in bargain section.

    Re: Upgrade advice

    i'm guessing 800mhz memory would just run as 667mhz on my mobo?. I was thinking of 4gb beacause I would be running a virtual machine which I was hoping to give around 2gb...
