Default Sweet, I just spent some money

I just thought I'd say I spent some money and bought a gig of RAM off ebay. But, I dont know the brand. He just said it wasnt the kind he needed for his mac, but its the kinda I need, ddr2 667 RAM. $41 shipped, think I got a good deal? I hope its a good brand. Does the brand make a huge difference? I got it off ebay and I didnt really expect to win but did and than had to tell my mom and she wasnt happy cause I didnt tell her, but idc, but now I have to put the rest of my money in teh bank, instead of saving it for a G80 card, =(. Oh well, its probably better in the bank and its only like $20, lol.

Sweet...hopefully it's not crap RAM. The timings will probably be less than stellar, and I doubt it's a well known brand name.

Well I have some kingston Ram, do you think it'll slow it down at all? I know overall it will slow it down, but I never understood timings.

Well, timings aren't as important as the clock speed frequency...but it may affect it a little bit. You'll just have to wait and see.

Yeah, I paid, and sent a message asking about the brand. Maybe He'll come back and say its kingston or crucial, lol. I hope he ships quick, he already left a positive rating.

He said its generic house brand. Any idea what that is? And what it will be like?

haha idk, it might not be that bad. It's just when i threw something similar (but i think it's still better than what you bought) into my computer I had to relax the timings to get it to work but it was still more of a benefit to have the extra memory despite making it slower overall.

maybe not but try it anyway and if it doesn't read correctly (as it will automatically downclock to work properly) you will have to relax the timings so you can set it to the correct memory clock.

oh yes for sure, it was still worth while when i added crappier RAM. Any performance I might have lost from relaxing the timings i regained substantially with the increased memory size. so don't worry it should still be worth it in the end
