Um.... Something seems strange about that RAM... but I can't place it.

Corsair is probably the best there is, but $10.70??
Somethings wrong here...
One NZ site lists it at $549.00 not sure how up to date that is though

Something's wrong. You just don't get high quality RAM with a lifetime warranty for $10.70. I smell a rat.

If it was true it would be good, but that's just not right. What shop is this? A familiar one?

Edit: The cheapest price on pricewatch (US) for 512MB ram is $26US. And that's Generic brand.

It is probably a typography error on the website when the details were updated. You will find that web site will have an errors and omissions clause in their policies for such whoopsies.

damn false advertising
and they updated the site when my friend and i were checking...
so sad

I presume the actualy price was $106.80 or something? Even that is quite cheap.
Oh well at least you got that sorted.
