Ok, im trying to purchase a 512 ddr pc 2700 kingston ram from Ebay. I understand that kington provides a life time warrenty, so am i right to say that even if the ram i receive is defective in any way, i can just send it to any shop that handles with kington's stuffs and ask for a replacement? Do i need to produce any receipts that i purchase from that store or any evidence wadsoever?

Im purchasing it overseas, from US, and im in Singapore. Not sure if it works this way.

Also, does all motherboard supports 2xs 512 rams? That would be 1gb. Below is the info on my motherboard.

i dont think that is the way it works as far as i known there is 2 ways of doing it u either return it directly to kingston who will check it and replace if neccacery or u return it to the place of purchase proving purchase and they will test it and either replace it and sent the damaged 1 back to kingston who will send them a replacement or they will just test it and if works offer an alternative.
