32GB PC3-12800 DDR3 Memory Price Drop?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
When should we expect to see 32GB (4x8GB) of memory drop in price? Right now it's in the $330 price range which makes me hesitant to buy that much right away. By next year do you think we can see it closer to $200 for that much? Just curious what your thoughts are. (I'm looking to use that much for virtualization)

Thanks,
My System

I'd say it's wholly unknowable. I'd buy RAM when I need it and not before. You may not think that very helpful, but I'm not trying to be unhelpful. wink.gif

I just bought 2x8gb of ECC RAM and I wish it was cheaper, but I needed it so I bought it. Do you need 32gb? I run a good bit of VM's as well so I can see how you would use that much. If you are running linux VM's you can save yourself a good bit of RAM by running server VM's without GUI's. I actually run all of mine that way. If you don't have or want that option, everything I've read says that prices may increase on RAM this year... that said, they dropped slightly over the last month.
