    I am interested in purchasing this RAM:

    (6GB (4GB+2GB) PC2-5300 DDR2-667 200pin SODIMM Memory)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190649220174&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

    $80 + $15 for a 3 year warranty is much cheaper than anywhere else I've found on the net for 6 gigs of this stuff. Do you folks think it would be wise to purchase this or is there "better" ram to be found on the net for a few extra bucks?

    For additional information, I have an early 2008 2.4ghz core 2 duo macbook:

    I'd only go for branded memory...
    even used one... Yet the price is good!

    Yeah, the price is good but I've never heard of the brand. If you trust that it will work though, the price is great. 1 4GB stick on newegg, for example, will cost at minimum $80

    Personally I think it's easier and cheaper just to put 4GB into that model; I have the same and plan to do so. There's no massive difference (especially since no major stuff can really be done on that CPU and GPU) between 6 and 4, plus you can get 2x2GB sets of good brand for around 50 bucks.

    Also, to point out a topic a little down the macbook section:

    The OP links to the exact same RAM you're looking at and found that the 4GB stick was faulty. Just something to consider.

    I might sell my 2GB module after the upgrade tomorrow.
    If anyone is interested, let me know with a PM please!
