    I have read there is such a thing as 'cheap' memory ram
    for a computer,sometimes called 'value ram'.

    is this accurate?

    Also i am deciding between buying Kbyte and PNY brand
    computer ram. Is one brand better than the other? Both
    are on sale locally

    Yes there is cheap ram. It is not always compatible with the motherbiard. Most name brand ram has a lifetime guarantee which makes it a better buy also. PNY is good ram, never used the other. I have gotten ram online from crucial.com and it is good also.

    Sharky,

    You may be refering to Kingston Value Ram. This is a brand name for a Line of Kingston's Memory....not a generic.

    Kingston has a decent reputation in the Memory business, and they offer a Lifetime Warranty.

    like most everyone here, i read thousands of computer
    magazines and recall seeing in print 'something about
    value ran and avoiding because its actually glued together
    or something like that'

    i thought i saw kingston 'value ram' on before(like 6 months
    ago) and last week i saw kingston ram again but without
    the word "value".

    i hate to say this but PNY's package looks better than Kingston's.

    so kingston's=pny as far as excellent quality. yes, i have heard
    crucial is a good place to buy RAM.
