    Question about Buffalo RAM at newegg

    Ok, I built my new system with 512mb of Buffalo ram last October from newegg (item: 20-150-564). Now, I thought Buffalo stopped making the CH-5 chips like a month or two after that, but they still have the same item number on their website...

    Is this the same ram that I got last October:

    I'm just hoping to upgrade to 1gb of memory and want it to go as smooth as possible. I'd also like to run this in dual-channel if possible.

    If this is not the same ram that I got before, should I go with what's on newegg now or go with another brand?

    The ram that you have linked to, DD4002-512/WC, should be CH-5. WC = Winbond Rev. C (CH-5). The pc3700 DD466-512/WB (Winbond Rev. B = BH-5) is no longer made since the chips are out of production.

    Buffalo technology should have a sticker on the chips showing the model number of the module. did you leave that on there, or do you have a receipt? Please post the module model numer.
