My 8 yo desktop is currently running on half RAM -- one of the 4 GB sticks is not registering. I will crack the case, clean the contacts, and re-seat it to see if that fixes it.

If that fixes the problem, I'll continue limping along with it. The PC runs fine, although it's obviously long in the tooth. I have looked into replacing it, but prices and availability have kept the old tiger running.

If it doesn't fix it? I can get a pair of 4 GB DDR3 (yes, this PC is that old!) for $46 USD.

Any suggestions on where to look for components? I build my own and haven't been pleased with what I've seen at the common vendors.

Thanks!

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
