Is this too good to be true? (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820211014)

This is the same type of ram that is in my desktop now( not the brand but it is DDr400) but $134 just seems too cheap to me. Id really like to upgrade from 1gig to 2 and if this ram is good I'll do it.

A-Data has gotten fairly good reviews from the NewEgg users. I got a gig of Patriot Ram from them not long ago, and I have been very, very pleased with it. They have a great RMA procedure in case it is DOA.

FWIW, I think you might be a wee bit safer with this:

Or if you can afford it, drop the extra 50 now, end up paying the same in the end after MIR, and get some really good ram like these Corsair sticks:
