Basic RAM questions Tags: Memory DDR3 RAM Basic Product Last response: August 18, 2011 2:27 PM in Memory Share F4stForw4rd August 16, 2011 8:38:39 PM OK so I have been looking to upgrade the RAM on my Dell N5030 to the maximum of 2 x 4GB, but one RAM supplier (offtek) is charging the same price for two types with different numbers. So I was wondering what the difference is between the two types, please? 204 Pin 1.5v DDR3 PC3-8500 SoDimm 204 Pin 1.5v DDR3 PC3-10664 SoDimm Offtek charge £20.22 for these, whereas Amazon seem to charge £70.82 for the same type of thing? Any other constructive suggestions will be carefully considered (and yes, I did read the sticky thread at the top, and yes it did confuse the hell out of me ) More about : basic ram questions abekl a b } Memory August 17, 2011 1:15:23 AM DDR3 1066 is synonymous with PC3 8500 (They are the same thing). Try looking around for better prices. F4stForw4rd August 17, 2011 4:52:21 PM OK thanks for the clarification. There is no rush, so I will be keeping an eye on HotUKDeals until some suitable Kingston, Corsair or other quality brand comes up in a suitable configuration at a bargain price. Thanks for your help!

LIFETIME warranty helps. Unless your on a major budget, go 1600 or more. Unless you have no OC intrest. Then go 1333. For the extra $10-$30, might as well get something good.
