    I appreciate your responses but I am concerned that if I bought it directly from manufacturer, I would be paying highest price possible, which I don't want to do.

    A few months ago I got a Kingston 256 stick at Circuit City for $18 after rebates. They probably still have some kind of sale going on.

    You can use the recommendations and specifications given by the manufacturers to buy elsewhere.

    Buy the model number the sites represent, but buy that model wherever you like. If you don't buy the model suggested, with ddr ram it most likely won't work. Thses are the most frequent failure posts on this forum.
