I was able to get a 256mb 133mhz ram for $83.69 and 10 bucks to overnight
it. (used the 10% online discount to pay the shipping). It arrived Monday
morning and I ordered it Saturday night at 7pm Eastern time.
Not bad, not bad at all!
Thanks for the great tip!

have tried to deliver and since we were not at the old address
the driver didn't leave it, but "our" driver knows where to leave
deliveries and there was special instructions on the order) so
methinks it is just late - no biggie. Got me:
Part No: CT32M64S4D7E

Order Subtotal : $100.63
I saw the $83.69 but went the next grade up which probably
amounts to a hill of beans... :) I mean what's a clock cycle for
startup speed when you are talking in nano seconds. <g> A sales
thing at best, but then every little bit adds up and helps in the
long run and when thinking of advancement in electronics, "you
have to learn to crawl before you walk." ;) In other words,
there was a 33 modem before 56 and copper before fiber, etc.
There are certainly other places to buy and you can get generic
for even quite a bit cheaper, but Crucial is well respected and
has name brand stuff, great support 800 number in US and Canada,
etc. I have never had a problem out of the generic which is
probably made by the name brand companies (so you are basically
getting the same stuff), but for a "few" extra bucks why not go
with the good for sure stuff. ;)
