The same memory was $99 on eBay, could not find a better price than I paid ($60). 2X4 GB =8 GB (some vendor on Amazon, through Amazon).
All 4 will be G.Skill X Series. Originally built my computer in 2011. Several upgrades since then, Video, memory.

Amazon and UPS screwed up my order, the 2 day shipping is a lie, my stuff is in a warehouse 20 minutes from me, now after calling someone they told me next Tuesday, I can't do anything about the screw up but wait. I gave them both my physical address, and a Box Office to get it on time, I have an Amazon Card I used to purchase the stuff. They keep telling me to use the benefits of Amazon Prime, like better shipping, etc..etc.. I used their 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime. Their shipping Warehouse is a 8 hour drive through a blizzard. They are in central California. I am just North of them in Central Oregon.... B.S. I ordered in Dec 1. it is now Dec 5. Now they say Dec 8.   >:(
