    I went to Crucial(www.crucial.com) and for my HP - Compaq dc7600
    Series Convertible Minitower Desktop/PC machine the suggested memory
    upgrade was 1GB, 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module CT907869
    costing about 23$. And, would my system be compatible with that RAM. I
    guess it may, but I am a newbie in RAM so would appreciate any advice.

    Can I find it for less price than that?

    Can someone please clarify?

    Thanks a lot.

    That is a good source of information.

    That sounds like a good plan to me. I haven't seen any ddr2 1G Fry's
    sales lately that would beat that by much depending on the shipping.

    Yes. Crucial's tool is a good one to use.

    > Can I find it for less price than that?


    Maybe, but not much. What is the total cost including shipping and
    handling? Do you have a local lowprice storefront operation that has
    sales like Fry's?
