It likely won't climb untill DDR3 is mainstream. Keep a close eye on it and if it starts to go up before your ready, perhaps jump on it.

I just found 2x1GB Firestix with CAS 5 for $119. Hehehehe.

I can't even use DDR2 yet and I want to buy them 'cause I'm sure the timings can be tightened.

Are the Firestix still being made with D9's? If not, that would explain the price.

***EDIT***
It was a type-o on the site yesterday. Why didn't I buy them at that price?!

Naw, the main reason prices are so low is the slow adoption rate of Vista and lack of expected upgrading. Manufactors overproduced... check the prices below. A 50% drop in prices since January (Vista was launched end of Jan). Prices are starting to climb again.
