We carry DDR3-1333 in large amounts for building systems, but also carry DDR2 in 800 & 667 speeds plus a couple of DDR1-400. We also carry a few sodimms for notebooks in DDR3 and DDR2.

We also have a large box full of second hand RAM of all types that we use for testing

We order memory specific for each clients machines. I don't believe in "just stick any old RAM of the same speed" into a computer. Major brands have memory selection guides...you pick the brand/make/model of the computer and it gives you a list of memory specifically tested on and approved to work with that model computer.

What andcorptech said pretty much sums it up, but if you come across any sd-ram or rd-ram for cheap or free they can come in handy too. You won't need it but rarely but most other shops probably won't have it and that could get you a customer.
