    I've got Micron 256mb PC2100 DIMM and a Micron 512mb PC2100 DIMM I'm trying to get rid of. My supplier has PC2100 new for cheap too if you want the name, I think they ship.

    http://www.memoryexpress.com/

    In Canada though.

    /note
    Kingston 512mb PC2100 for $119.95CAD---- $90.28USD
    They are selling PC2700 for the SAME price though...

    I'll give you a good price on mine, say half the cost of retail? So, about $100CAD, $75USD for both DIMMS (Micron Original PC2100 768mb)?

    You gotta pay for shipping though.

    Bought the 256mb about 3 years ago, and the 512mb about 2 years ago. Both have been running at 133Htz, CAS 3 for about 2700 hours in that time. Well cooled, motherboard temps are around 20°C. The actual chips are both CAS 2.5.

    I have my eyes on these thats why I'm trying to get rid of my old memory. ($279.99)

    If you can handle the $34 outlay until the rebates arrive Compusa is running an add for $10 for a PC2100 CL2.5, 256 MB stick of Kingston this week. I picked one up for a friend. Torture tested it and it ran an hour burn in at CL 2.0 with no problems.

    (Wait, no I meant for myself. For a friend might be illegal under the terms of the rebate...)

    i like to have all the same RAM brands so I don't get like an incompatibility issue between the RAM sticks. its happened to my cousins before when he had like crucial and nanya in his system or something like that!!

    oh and thanks Leejend! I'll have to check Compusa out! I love that store.

    Yeah, thats a good idea. Even between different quality/size sticks in the same brand.

    Mixing different RAM qualities could cause efficiency problems, or other problems such as: if you were to say set it up incorrectly in CMOS and for whatever reason one DIMM was PC2100 and the other PC3200 and the SPD set both to 400Hz with a CAS of 2, you could burn the other chip or at the very least cause stability errors.
