    yes, i know rd-ram is extremely outdated
    but i want to give my dads dell dimension 8200 a little extra life
    it has 256mb of rd-ram and its way too expensive for me to buy off of newegg
    so if anyone has any pls pm me or just reply

    I just had to do the exact same thing, my parents' 8200 was crawling at everything. I don't have any spare, but check eBay, thats where I got a set of 512 sticks (for $60 or so) Everywhere else is majorly overpriced.

    I have two 128MB Samsung sticks I'll let go real cheap. Last time they were in a machine they worked, but they have been sitting in a draw for a few months. $10 shipped.

    You send him $10, and he ships them to you, as opposed to $10 + whatever it costs him to ship it.

    If you cannot find them from anyone on here, you will be paying exponentially more than $10. If you have to look anywhere retail, they charge an arm and a leg, and ebay is still much more than newtekie1's offer, so I'd suggest going with it. What do you have to lose?

    Unfortunately, no I can't test them. I no longer have an RD-RAM machine.

    I have 2x512MB on one of my rigs but I need to figure out first if I want to keep the whole thing. It has served me in the past as a back-up, hate to let it go;) I'll let you know.
