Default Memory

I need some good memory thats cheap yet has great performance.
I want something that I can get like a 512MB stick and upgrade later with another once I get more cash.

My stats are in my sig.

I cant use this pcs 512mb of RAM because its not my PC.


Thanks.

Edit:

I think maybe Ill get 1GB as long as its under 100 dollars.

The RAM you chose is perfect, but as long as you're not overclocking, you could get Corsair ValueSelect or Kingston ValueRAM which is cheaper then even what you chose. And your sig works for me...

I personally prefer OCZ, and it really is reassuring seeing as how they back all their products with a LIFETIME warranty.

Although I hear Ultra ram is pretty good/cheap too, found at tigerdirect.com or .ca

yes the OCZ performance series ram OCs well, all you got to do is pump up the voltage and play with the timings and your off to FX-57 speeds. if you want some really nice OCing ram.
i recomend this

a little out of your price range, ok a lot out of your price range, but this thing can do about DDR520 without a dvider. and i believe if your running an intel you can do DDR550

That RAMs too expensive for me but the OCZ suggested before is fine.
Ill probably buy it.
