    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.

    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.
