They've always been cheap. It's just that until a few years ago, I think RAM companies worked together to fix the price of RAM to be ridiculously high. I think someone filed a lawsuit against the companies or something. So thats why RAM is wayy cheaper than it used to be.

Feel free to disprove this information.

That RAM you linked to is surprisingly expensive. I recommend this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820231276 (It's faster and cheaper)

DDR3 prices are finally down to DDR2; see DRAM prices continue to fall.

oh, thats weird the price just went up. that ram was 45 bucks with 20 dollar MIR. so getting ram around 45-50 bucks should be a pretty good deal nowadays right?

Yeah RAM prices are at a good spot right now, considering that they were double the price around 6 months ago.
