Referenced products are available through its web store, and Kingston also provides links to alternate vendors of their product line. Kingston waives its $6 base 2-3 day shipping rate for any direct order over $49.99.

Kingston's service was among the most informative, stating clearly that "MODULES MUST BE ORDERED AND INSTALLED IN PAIRS for Dual Channel mode" and "Virtually any configuration up to 4 GB can be reached using Kingston's 128, 256, 512 MB, and 1 GB modules IN PAIRS" on the selection screen. However, their factory-direct pricing seemed relatively expensive, and selecting another vendor would add several steps to the purchase process.
