Im after 2x1Gb sticks of DDR 333Mhz for a Dell 8600 and 2x1Gb sticks of DDR2 533Mhz for a Dell 9300 to give a quick boost to a couple of laptops for a friend.

Does anyone have anything lying around doing nothing they want to get rid of ? Im always keen to take things off peoples hands before looking to buy new stuff and Geekzone has really done me proud in the last couple of months :)

Cheers

I have a 200pin DDR2-800 1GB card from my netbook, not sure if they are compatible with 533 etc. But the replacement I bought said that it was backwards compatible. When my new one arrives I will give you the proper specs to see if it suits.

i have a couple of boxes of brand new 2 x 2GB DDR2 dimms (4GB total per box) that i bought in error.  The kits are worth about $200 each retail.  if you want to buy 4GB, make an offer, over $100.

Kit is 2 of these:

I can throw in a couple of 512MB PC2-4400 sodimms for free if they're of any use..

Hi Regs,

As much as I would like to have the 4Gb I dont think the 9300 handles any more than 2X1Gb sticks.

Ill double check a little later on
