Default OCZ 6GB RAM Doubled in Price?!

Wow, I bought these back in July 09 for $95 and now they are at $205!

Newegg.com - OCZ Platinum 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LV6GK

This is crazy. I thought computer hardware is suppose to decrease in price over time.

Looks like I got a sweet deal!

Ram has been going up lately. No one knows why every company is increasing their ram price.

They underestimated the uptake of DDR3, how can they ever make a profit when such a new (now current) generation costs so little? If you introduce a new product at $95 for 6GB (which is what i bought my Corsair for, SOO lucky i did), when will you ever make a real profit?

The price is as much as the market can bare now.
