    I'd say consumers are seeing the drops already. I just looked at a receipt for a 512 MB stick of Corsair PC3200 I bought in July last year and I paid $350 for it. I recently bought 1 GB of Corsair PC3500 for just under $400.

    The future for memory chips scares me. Nobody in the field now is making money which means only a few companies will be left when everything shakes out. In the future it seems like we might be paying a lot for memory because there won't be as much competition as there has been for the past few years.

    Anyone else worried?

    Actually, thanks to the heads up, I did pick up a pair of samsung 512M ECC registered DDR 2700. My server will be so very happy for the hefty RAM upgrade.

    shant,
