Sorry everyone. Extremely sharp price increases in memory the last few days (30% to 40%!) with no end in sight right now. We'll do what we can to offer deals, but expect everything to go up quickly.
Buy now. It's bound to increase further. NCIX has been providing warnings to its customers about market fluctuations in RAM pricing for quite a while. What they state has thus far proved correct.

I have 4 gigs of DDR2 6400 Geil RAM. I bought it for only £126 ($252 a month ago and I will probably keep it to the price drop occurs then sell it for loads more hopefully gain at least £50!

I need to buy my crucial ballistix 8500 RAM as soon as possible, need to try and get some off eBay tommorow... the prices are incredible.. I remember a few months back (About 4) DDR2 6400 was £160 for 2GB in the UK a month ago it has been around £70!!! £90 saving!

I don't understand....DDR2 is still strong and DDR3 hasn't even touched the surface yet.

There is no reason to cut back production....supply and demand should still be xtremely high.

I guess some IC manufacturers think it's a good time to transition to DDR3, so lots of the DDR2 fabs are being converted. That lowers production and increases costs...right on time for back-to-school specials!

Either way, NCIX's FA warned us about it last year too, so I'd trust him.

Shouldn't price stay the same or go down because players like NCIX and Newegg want to get RID of DDR and DDR2?

NCIX moves thousands of sticks of RAM through every week. When you're selling ~200,000 sticks of RAM per year, you're ordering huge volumes of stock. The manufacturer's prices fluctuate, and you have to adjust yours accordingly, or make a loss.

Shouldn't price stay the same or go down because players like NCIX and Newegg want to get RID of DDR and DDR2?
Demand for DDR2 is WAY higher than DDR3. There is no reason to want to get rid of it, as both DDR and DDR2 were selling well even during the price fixing.

However, I was planning on getting some components in the near future, might pick out the RAM now to make sure I get it before the price spikes again.
