Hi All,

 

I've got an old PC for my young daughter, and its struggling with low memory performance.

 

Its getting hard to find DDR2 now, but I was hoping someone here might be nice enough to find some laying about in an old box etc.

 

 

 

We're after 4GB (2x2GB sticks) total but will happily take 1x2GB stick if you have one - let me know.

 

Speed doesn't matter but would prefer ddr2-667 / PC2-5300 or better

 

Unbuffered, Non-ECC, 240 pins (Desktop - not laptop memory, not server).

 

 

 

I'm looking to pay ~$10 per stick. We're in Tauranga, and can pay postage.

 

I can trade you for the existing 2x1GB memory modules if you're interested.

 

 

 

Thanks!
