    'Tis a pity they won't ship to Canada. I wonder how much business they're losing?

    Nice catch.

    Max Ram is 3.3GB if you don't have the Santa Rosa Chipset.

    That's usually an artificial mark-up for a "kit". The manufacturers create a "matched pair" of sticks for the dual-channel memory busses and then mark it up. Back when dual-channel memory was new, this was important to have as they really ensured that two sticks had the same timings/etc., but with DDR2 being so mature, IMO it's unnecessary unless you're planning to overclock and push things to the limit. I'm guessing that most "kits" aren't matched at all (on a tester) but are just two sticks thrown into the same box.

    Also, by selling a "kit" they are appealing to those who know less about how to upgrade a computer and are charging the n00b more for the security of knowing that they bought a "pre-engineered kit".

    I wouldn't count on it... The prices on this RAM will likely increase over the next few months.

    Thanks. I was looking on Newegg for this ram. I ordered on Monday afternoon. The RAM (4GB) arrived at 3:30pm Wednesday. Thanks for the info, also thanks Newegg!
