thats about the right price concidering the £10 postage fee. it is only value ram remember so dont expect much overclocking potential.

if ur sig u have 1gig of ram already. do u really need the extra 512mb? cos puttin that in will stop u running dual channel if ur chip is 939.

Would upgrading to this ram be worth it? Would i see noticable differences to what im using already? Im not planning on overclocking it.

It's a good price. Too bad they don't list all the latency sections, but it'll probably run fine. Cosair is good stuff, usually, so no worries.
