    Post RAM Prices **** me off

    okay, 3 weeks ago I bought 512MB of PC133 RAM for $96.

    Now, it's $39.

    I paid $44 for a 128 stick of PC133 in january, too.

    GRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!

    at this rate, it'l be FREE in a few weeks.

    your right, ram prices are nuts. ddr prices are getting cheaper than pc133 and thats what really amazes me. ive also noticed that other computer parts are cheap also (not dirt cheap like ram) compared to what they used to be. burners, cpu's, hard drives, and ram have dropped in price.
