Buying RAM Online

Where is a reliable affordable place to buy RAM online? I'm after 2 x 4GB DDR2 6400S sticks for my laptop, and maybe some 4GB DDR2 6400E sticks for my Workstation.

The amount of sites a google search returns is overwhelming, can anyone recommend some trusted UK based sites to buy from?

Cheers.

Only one place for me - that's guaranteed and proved to be the best Crucial.com http://www.crucial.com/uk/ and use the scanner tool it will show you all your options.

crucial is not the cheapest however does have a scanner so you can find what is suitable for your machine and a quibble free money back guarantee if the ram is wrong or doesn't work when you get it.

I buy some samples of new memory chips via eBay from the USA. Never had any problems so far, and it is usually a little cheaper including delivery (which can take 7/14 days). Ebuyer http://www.ebuyer.com is another source, perhaps worth a look.

Crucial provided excellent service and advice for me. On my laptop their online scanner failed to see any RAM ! Kept reporting zero RAM installed. Their online email advice was excellent though.

Thanks for the help, I think I was kidding myself about prices, the 4GB laptop RAM is over £50 wherever I look!
