get a less expensive case and buy youself 512 megabytes of ram instead. and to me it seems like you could get a barton 2500 for a lot less than 135. try newegg.com or zipzoomfly.com

do you think "256mb DDR RAM PC-3200 KINGSTON 400mhz CAS-3" would work on the motherboard? because im on quite a budget the corsair pc3200 256md is quite a bit more expensive 4 the same amount of ram

would "256mb DDR RAM PC-2700 CORSAIR XTREME MEMORY SPEED 333MHz CAS2" work with the Abit NF7 motherboard?

Both RAM moduals should work, make sure they are DIMM sticks, as that is what your motherboard supports.

The three most used RAM companies are:
Corsair
Kingston
Crucial-(Mainly because poeple mistake crucial for corsair.)

I would trust ram from either of those three compaines.

i still dont understand why ppl pay double for these big name brands. i use 512 PC3200 oem, the chips have VDATA on them so i guess thats the make. plus i got the one stick for 50 uk pounds. so i thinks thats about $75 the cas is set to 2.5 i think surely twice as much ram at the same speed is betta than any hardles noticable differences?
