    Hi, I have a Dell Dimension 8250 with 256meg of Ram and I really would and should go with another 256meg. I see people selling Memory on Ebay and was wondering if using used memory is ok or not?

    go to www.crucial.com and look at what they recommend for your system. Then goto newegg and select your ram.

    as most experienced techies will tell you buying used memory from eBay is a definite crap shoot. Only do it if they have a iron clad return policy and there rating is unblemished. Buying from a private party on ebay is not the way to buy ram at all. you are stuck with what you end up with.

    Crucial doesn't have my type of memory and newegg doesnt carry it. The memory is for a DELL Dimension 8250. PC1066 RDRAM non-ecc.

    Try a google search for your Ram and see who makes it and who sells it. Might be worth a shot.
