A Good Site To Buy Desktop Computer Memory

Filed under: Hardware — Tags: , , , , — Dennis @ 1:27 pm

A while back, I decided to add extra RAM to my iMac. I had heard from a friend that found a deal for 1G of PC5300 SODIMM for the iMac for as low as $25.00. At the time, I got lucky and found a blowout special at a local retailer for about that price. Now, the same piece of Memory costs over $100.00. Ouch!

Enters the scene: They are focused on providing the correct memory for your system, not just a compatible brand that will work. As I browsed through the different products, I was pleasantly surprised that I could Add IMAC Memory for under the same low price that I originally wanted. Sweet! has more than just great prices on desktop memory. They also have guides that help you understand what you need to know about adding computer RAM to your system. At the bottom of the home page, you can select the type of system you have, the amount of RAM you want, or a number of other criteria to help you decide exactly what you need to fit in your system. For instance if you need DDR PC2700 Memory, you can check that page, read about the different types and brands they have available, and then see all the appropriate products at the bottom of the page.

Anyway, I may be tempted enough to upgrade from 2 to 4 Gigs in my iMac. Nobody every complained about having a little more memory! conveniently takes their orders through PayPal too. You don’t need to worry about the security of there site or their credit card processor. Just use your PayPal account.

More RAM? Or maybe a new Computer?

Well, my sister asked me today which is better, getting more RAM, or just getting a new computer. I’ll do my best to explain.

Your CPU is directly responsible for the speed at which a computer program runs. If programs load slow, take a long time to do certain tasks, and your computer seems generally clunky, It COULD be that purchasing a new computer with a faster CPU would help speed things up.
