prices are still around 50+ for 2gb here.. that'd be nice- pick up 4 more while it's good
4GB Kingston 1333mhz SODIMM Module £39 = win! in fact i bought 2
In other words "nih". Yeah I've seen a crazy decrease in DDR3 prices... my memory for my i7 was like Â£200 start of the year, its Â£130 or something now :|
i just bought 2 x 2gigs of g.skilll ripjaw series 1600mhz for $44, was $79 bucks last week
Extreme q vaporizer efficiency
Yesterday i saw 2x4GB DDR3 with no price premium over 4x2 sticks. Oh happy days, we can start to finally move from 2 to 4GB sticks!
shame this doesn't apply to DDR2.... the prices of them are unbelievable
got kingston hyper x blu 4gb of 1600mhz ddr3 from ebuyer for £43! bargain yesterday and delivered today on super saver free delivery but today the 2 gb kits from £34. if you see a bargain act fast it wont be around for long they sold 28 sets yesterday i saw them at 6am and all gone by end of day.
So prices will bottom early next year? When is sandy bridge due and what type of memory does it support? I can definately see a pricing sweet spot when sandy bridge is imminent/newly released where i3/i5/i7 cpus and architecture will be heavily discounted and the supported ram for this architecture is at rock bottom prices, time to upgrade then no?
I need some of that for my lappy.
Hmm, that's odd, I'm running Win 7 64bit and at the moment using less that 1 Gig of memory. That's with Firefox up and a hardware monitoring program. So not much but I rarely see 2 Gig used, just opened Adobe with my mobo manual, still under a Gig. What are you running?
Let's see, in the USA at the 'Egg, single 1GB DDR3 1333 9 9 9 24 modules are $18 - $25.
1 x 2GB DDR3 1600 9 9 9 24 modules are $34.
2 x 2GB DDR3 1600 9 9 9 24 modules are $50.
1 x 4GB DDR3 1333 9 9 9 24 modules are $60.
3 x 1GB DDR3 1600 9 9 9 27 modules are $68.
3 x 2GB DDR3 1333 9 9 9 24 modules are $76.
Of course there are more expensive choices of the same type as these, but they are not no-name brands.
And to top it all off the 3 X 2GB DDR3 1600 modules I bought in August for $145 are now $110.
So yes, prices have dropped. Since DDR4 won't be here until 2012, and Sandy Bridge CPUs/Mobo's will be using DDR3, now may be the time to stock up. It seems the high-end memory has not dropped in price as much.
That's great. Now, it would be possible for me to get that.
may as well fill all the slots up lol
