I noticed play.com have their own brand 1GB PC2700 DDR 333Mhz 184pin 
DIMM on sale for £16.99, although I think the sale might end today. That 
is a quarter of what I used to pay for DDR400 when it was current, 
although I used to buy 256 or 512 MB DIMMS, as there was always a 
premium on the 1gig ones. The only spare I have is 256MB.
