    If you like to take chances and are willing to loose the $40... Go for it

    read the upgrading ram guide in the guides forum before you buy any ram.

    Hmm

    Chance are that is probably a pull from a HP or Dell or similar OEM brand. It is probably worth $40 but dont be expecting to get a stick of Corsair XMS with
    2-2-2-4 timing or anything.

    then if you know about ram, you'll know what's worth.
    whether or not you can trust an ebay seller is anyone's gamble.

    yeah definatly ask the seller if it is compadible with your CHIPSET i bought 2 gigs off ebay and it didn't work on my computer but it did on an older one. btw i bought Samsung PC3200 DDR400. Nothing bad about the ram, but really before buying it check and ask if it works on your computer dun make the mistake i did.

    as a very experienced ebay user both buying and selling, you better do your homework first. A lot of sellers on ebay don't know jack about computers and vice versa.
