Unfortunately, memory prices don't look to be dropping any time soon. According to DRAMeXchange, contract quotes for 1Gb (gigabit) DDR3 inched upwards in the first half of March from $2.41 to $2.69. This has pushed the price of 2GB DDR3 modules to around $41.50 to $43 (supplier pricing).

Crap. I needed to get new RAM. Doesn't look good.

Glad I built my system when DDR3 ram was $170 for 8GB.

I remember just last year this time, I spent like 60 something for 4GB DDR2. Now my dad wants to upgrade and some DDR2 is almost 100$ thats nonsense!

RAM has gone up significantly since I built this comp in September. The 3GB 7-8-7-20 1600 DDR3 Mushkin kit cost me $83 + FS!!! Now, the cheapest 3GB tri-kit is like 9-9-9-24 and costs $109

This is not looking good. I was thinking about building a new computer soon. I guess I will have to wait. Glad the 4GB in my current comp was bought for $40 last year sometime.

I noticed this, I bought 4Gb of Crucial Ballistix last August for £55, sold them on. Now, the same set is over £90, some are closer to £100.

In fact, the Ripjaw's in my sig cost me £95 from ebuyer.

I'm glad that I built my system when I did (May 2009). My 2x2GB OCZ kits cost me 55€ back then, which is about 75$. Now they cost about 100€ (about 140$)!!!!

Man this sucks. Guess I'll be sticking with my c2d and ddr2 sticks. I bought them for $40 shipped. These prices make me cry.
