I need help figuring out the right type of RAM for my motherboard.



ASUS P4P800-E DELUXE 478 Intel 865PE ATX Intel Motherboard

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...



I think this is the right type of RAM for my motherboard but I'm surprised at how expensive it is for only 4GB (it's over $100)

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


For new motherboards I can find 24GB of RAM for around $100 so I'm not sure why it's so expensive.


So can anyone recommend the right type of RAM for my computer for around $25 or so for 4GB from ebay?

Thank you for any help!!

It's expensive because almost no one makes it anymore as it's been out of use for years. The process is also more expensive, and it's an extremely low volume part.

You already know what to look for on Ebay " 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400"

Honestly it's time to replace it and memory isn't going to help your performance. Pentium 4s were bad when they came out, let alone now. I don't even think most of the prescotts can handle a 64bit OS so you might not even be able to use 4GB. No sense throwing money art it when you could replace it for 2 or 3 hundred with something much better

I use Windows XP and I know it can only read around 3.5 GB of RAM but I'm fine with that. It's still better than the amount of RAM I have now which is only 1GB.

I want to find some second hand RAM on Ebay for around $25 like I mentioned which is far away from $200 or $300. So that's my reason, I'm just looking for an inexpensive RAM upgrade at the moment. Not putting 100's of dollars (which is ultra conservative) into a new computer.

They haven't released drivers for any OS after XP is my guess.
