That would be a cute trick as I don't think I have ever seen a 6 GB stick of ram. Also you linked to the exact same ram i did,

yeah same ram, but was implied it was 3 sticks of 2gb. and yeah i've never seen a single 6GB stick.

could return them, but charge for returns a % and postage, might just ebay them.

cheers for help though guys atleast i'm a bit more on the ball now.
