DDR?

As DDR2 becomes the norm...stock of DDR will drop for a little bit. Then it will climb back up quite high as it becomes "older RAM".

I know it's ridiculous.....My stuff is only 10.00 more than the Gskill value series stuff now...


I was >< that close to ordering almost 6 gigs of RAM for various PC's last night......it's very hard to pass on.

I want to get 4GB but I hate vista and 32bit can only use 3 anyway..sort of feels like a waste while I stick to XP.

I wish I could find the chips I have now... the ones in my sig.. anyone care to hunt them down please let me know.. I don't care where and I don't care how much.. I'd just like to get 2 more chips or something that will work well with them to push me to 4gigs.

Unless you have the 64-bit version that 4 GB won't be utilized to its full potential, also, if you fill all 4 memory slots you cannot run in 1T command rate for the RAM, only 2T.

I'm going to be upgrading to Vista x64 Ultimate in a couple of months and will definitely be going 2 2GB modules of DDR2.

RAM prices are awesome now.
