Where can I find cheap RAM yet good quality? I'm trying to find 2 sticks of 4 GB RAM each for a total of 8 GB of RAM. What I need is non ECC PC-2 5300 or 6400 DDR2. But I can't seem to find anything for less than $150. Anyone know where I can look?

    Did you check eBay? prices are less than 30$ ..

    For 150$ I think you are looking at Server RAM.

    I'll double check ebay but how would I I know If it's server RAM? I'll can tell you is it was marketed as a business desktop with Windows Vista business on it and requires non ecc memory

    Server RAM tends to be either ECC or Fully Buffered Registered RAM (sometimes marked as FB RAM). That is what you would look for when you look for server RAM. Non-server RAM (desktop) won't mention either of those.
