I've a ecs k7s5a mobo, windows 98se, 256Mb ddr pc2100 ram, 1.9athlon xp, ti4200 graphics.

I'm after more ram and notice ram prices have dropped sharply in last month or 2. Eclipse Computer website have 256Mb 266Mhz 184Pin DDR Memory Module £24.9 (£29.32 with vat). This seems almost too good to be true. Is it? Am I missing something - I take it/hopefully there should not be compatilibity issues with my mobo?

many thanks

Sounds a good price, the cheapest I can find is £48-00 inc. J.

Do people think that memory prices will keep coming down???

I hope so I don't think we will see the good old £1 per Mb days again

There have been some complaints in the forums about Eclipse Computers in recent months - ebuyer as well come to that....

Check Crucial out first - might be a bit more but their sales and after sales service is the best in the UK; perhaps in the world...:-)
