Price check : O2 ram

Unread postby JacquesT » Thu Apr 12, 2018 6:32 am

Yes I know, how long is a piece of string and all that...Just trying to guage reasonable costs for O2 ram in the 128mb and 256mb kit varieties.

I want to get my O2 to at least 384mb and have 4 slots left with 128mb installed in 2x 64mb kits. 6.5.22 with 128mb is painful.


MemoryX sells 256mb kits for $95, but it would cost me roughly 1.5 times that to import to the UK.

Anybody in the UK know of reasonable availability?

Ian sells the 128MB kits for £75, so it'd be £150 to buy 4 64MB sticks from him. As he's in the UK, postage should be cheap.

Found some 128mb Kingston kits on eBay uk, bought two kits for £64 + £4 postage, not too bad...!

Will leave the old ram in to make a total of 384mb until I can source / afford 2x 256 kits for a total of 768mb.
