It was super cheap a couple months ago, I remember seeing 4gb kits of ddr2 1066 for under 50$. I'm glad I got this kit of ocz 4gb 800 a while back for 35$, same speed/timings is now over 90.
I would think it being slightly older tech fabs are switching more towards ddr3 and demand for ddr2 is still pretty high, hence ddr3 prices coming down, ddr2 was/is heading up. I was hoping to pick up another 4gb before christmas but from the looks of things I'll just hold off and upgrade my whole system when I can.

Tons of people/businesses have older computers and when something goes wrong it might be cheaper to upgrade but they usually send it out for repair. If that's the case most places just fix the problem or try and talk them into a new system. Aside from that I think it comes down to them lining their wallet. What would be more profitable, flood the market with one or all types of ram and the price will fall dramatically. However if there are only a few options for it the price will go up.Edited by accskyman - 11/19/09 at 11:14am
