In my opinion, $80 is scary high. I've been buying a good stock of that RAM lately; Newegg had it retailing (RETAILING, not even on sale) for $88 a couple weeks ago. Not sure why the retail's so much higher now. I bought two sets on OCN: one for $60 shipped, the other $55. I got a second chance offer on eBay for $53 for another set.
$55-65 shipped would be reasonable.
Here's another link for what's basically the same RAM:
$98 shipped on the Egg, which is still a little high for that RAM.

There was no single price drop. Prices have been fluctuating a lot. Right now, prices aren't too dissimilar from prices 1.5-2 years ago. $70 on eBay would be the average going price, and people pay too much for parts on there...
Looking at eBay, $60 might actually be high as well.Edited by aaronmonto - 7/18/11 at 5:07pm
