    Wow! Memory prices have sure shot up.

    Was thinking about adding another 8gb to the machine, and what was selling for $52 is now $90! Ouch! It seems they started creeping up slowly and just lately have taken a huge jump. I guess I'm holding off on that other 8gb for now.

    Prices tend to fluctuate due to current oil prices.

    Memory makers cut production, prices have been rising steadily since.

    Why are you responding to an almost year old post? BTW, memory prices have gone down.
