    Any suggestions on a good place to buy 1GB or better RAM?

    The two places I'm familiar with are newegg and tigerdirect.

    Thanks.

    I've been buying fairly regularly from 4allmemory.com. They tend to have stock, and are well priced, on a lot of the more "unique" RAM that I use in my vision systems. I tend to use large capacity chips, and they've always had what I needed.

    +1 for zipzoomfly, newegg, and crucial. I always check all 3 and go with the best deal for that given day.

    I always use www.pricewatch.com when buying computer hardware of any kind (including ram), because they index thousands of other websites and you'll KNOW you're getting a good deal (because it sorts by price). Obviously if you want reliability you'll want name brand and not generic, but you can see all the details so you don't HAVE to buy the cheapest because it's the cheapest.

    But I use that site for everything -- definitely check it out

    or www.newegg.com

    stick to brands like Crucial, Kingston, PNY isn't too bad. I've used Geil too.

    just make sure to get the right type to ensure compatibility.
