needed to upgrade my desktop pc at home which doubles as a windows server 2008 box running hyper v with lots of virtual machines. Went to buy some more RAM and found 4gig RAM sticks are selling for 41 bucks each!! (http://www.elive.co.nz/kingston-valueram-4gb-1333mhz-sy2888.php

These are Kingston chips of which I currently use 2 already and have had no problems with. The last one I purchased a few months back for just over $80 so prices have halved in the last few months it would seem. Couldnt resist and have cranked my machine up to its max 16 gig FTW :)

Now if only SSDs would come down to the same levels...

Thats why I went for 8GB in my new comp. It was only $6 more expensive to get 2 4GB sticks than it was to get a 4GB kit with 2 2GB sticks in it.

if you can kit your machine out with 16 gigs for 160 bucks I say do it.

Interesting read here http://www.techspot.com/news/45179-dram-market-remains-unstable-amid-weak-demand.html about why prices cheap at moment. I guess exchange rates also make a bit of a difference at the moment.
