Navigating the Memory Upgrade Jungle

Corsair Configurator

Corsair allows two methods of selecting your system or motherboard : either via drop-down menus or a model search. Both are shown.

Select the system or motherboard model, or let the system search for similar models

Select capacity/speed and use the "Buy Now" link

Corsair uses the PriceGrabber search engine to locate relevant vendors.

Overall, Corsair offered a very nice service for a brand with no factory direct store, though choosing a vendor does add a few steps to the purchase. Also, we found that several obscure models were not available through either TG Stores or the PriceGrabber search engine. Finally, Corsair does not mention the desirability of matched pairs for dual-channel operation in the Dell Dimension 4600 used here.
