    Folks,
    has anyone tried a Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model PEF4G133SD for use as a ReadyBoost drive?
    I'd like to know if it will work before actually ordering it.

    Also, any opinions as to good 1x1GB 200pin DDR2 667 memory?
    I want to upgrade to have 2GB for Vista.
    Thx!

    Just to update this thread, I actually got a transcend 4Gb SD card, and it works great with ReadyBoost.

    for memory i would suggest OCZ or corsair, they are a bit expensive but are pretty good performance.

    Hi jlg,

    I don't know if you are in the states, but I purchased a 1gb PNY Optima Memory ddr2 667mhz 200pin notebook memory module for $60 on sale from Staples. Reg. price was approx $100 or more. Check out Staples, J&R, & Compusa for good deals.

    Good luck!
