    Contact me if you have any of the above *stuffs*, note speed 1066 or faster.

    Minimum 2 x 4G sticks

    Will pay cash and cover freight. Leave a note here or contact me via PM if you have anything that fits the bill.

    I wish I had some for ya. All my DDR2's are DDR2 800 PC6400
    I've never owned a 1066 stick before. Those are probably rare...
    Hence your request.
    There are a few on Newegg.com of course: DDR2 1066

    Yeah, but that item is 2x2GB. I'd rather not use 4 slots in this machine, am looking to double the memory in the same two slots. Using 4 slots would be a last resort, since it forces the 2T memory timing rather than 1T. Actually, I'm not even sure that 2x4GB in DDR2 was ever even made, TBH.

    This is what is running in there now: Kingston HyperX KHX8500D2K2/4G:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820104073 (not available, as you see)

    There is some stuff identical to this on eBay, though. If I'm forced to use all four slots and go to 2T, I think I'd want to get the exact same item.

    If I can't come up with anything, and if you're up for it, I might send you some cash, and have you buy it and ship it to me.

    Oh, thats right, you live in Thailand. Yeah I could do that for ya.

    I just noticed that DDR4 is out on newegg.com.
    Mostly Intel-based mothboards, but still... things keep moving forward.
    Getting faster and better.
    The cheapest motherboard I could find that uses DDR4 was $200.00
