    Should i get this ram?

    Is this a good ram to get for that price.. or should i settle with newegg.com prices? and lower brands like patriot or gskill?

    Is corsair worth it?

    im using an emachines t1842 desktop cpu 1.8 ghz..

    ps:this 256 card i got was from my brothers emachine that was a higher version up then mine.. so since he doesnt really use the cpu that much i gave him my 128 and i got his 256...

    the stick that im using is a 256 mb 184 pinn pc2700 333mhz samgsung chip


    Is the one im buying the highest performance chip i can get?

    If you know more.. i am willing to go higher to pay more.. or cheaper or whatever

    is that chip good?

    difference between mine and the one ur showing is that its not

    " corsair system select" You see the tag on the stick where its white with a yellow oval and it says " select"

    Not sure if that makes a difference in quality or its newer?

    heh, expensive ram in an emachine.

    I'd probably just get kingston or whatever else is cheap with a lifetime warranty.

    Newegg sells the same "System Slect" Corsair for $14 cheaper. I agree about not spending too much for high end RAM. There is plenty of good RAM for your situation for less money.
