Do-It-Yourself Memory Upgrades
Sure, it might be easy to have your computer manufacturer customize your new desktop or notebook with that additional RAM before it gets shipped to you. However, you might want to do a little research and a little of your own upgrading to save some money. You may be able to save $100 or more on 512 MB of RAM.

Computer makers tend to charge new computer buyers the highest prices for memory. But, you can work around them by buying your new computer with the standard amount of RAM, then buying a separate memory module from an online memory discount store. When both the computer and the RAM arrive, you can do the memory upgrade yourself.
