Default Ddr3

So how long do you think it'll be before DDR3 drops down to a more reasonable price?

Its been out for a while and its still more than double what DDR2 costs. Is DDR2 just cheap? I can't really say I know a ton about the current RAM market but it seems like at this rate, by the time we can easily afford DDR3, DDR4 will be coming out.

It took DDR2 a couple of years to get cheap. Same will happen with DDR3.

That's how it is. When new technology is almost ready to release, they drop the prices of the current.

Do you think in about a year they'll have DDR2 mobos that are actually new and up to date on everything else?

DDR3 is actually starting to come down a bit already. Once the nehalem boards/chips come out and -only- support ddr3, prices should be more reasonable, or at least the speeds will justify the extra cost.
