    In other words "nih". Yeah I've seen a crazy decrease in DDR3 prices... my memory for my i7 was like £200 start of the year, its £130 or something now :|

    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!

    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?

    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.
