It is $185 at newegg, so a little expense, plus a little sketchy from ebay.

edit - also $181 at monarchcomputers.com

I just bought from them and they were very good. Not sure if they ship to you or not.

ive dealt with ebay for years without a hitch so i have faith in it. im gonna try to bring him down to the new egg price or thereabouts. Im also deciding on taking the Asrock P4V88 mainboard from the same seller, link here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

does anybody see any compatibility issues here with the mobo and ram.

Actually

The Memory is not dual channel, but the motherboard contains dual channel. Only the motherboard controls the dual channel.

oh i was not aware of this, i was under the assumption that ram had to be of type dual channel also. Am i right in saying then that these two different types of RAM (links below) are the same in performance and capable of running dual channel if the mainboard is indeed a dual channel mainboard. Also one is about $50 cheaper than the other.
