Default Re: Ram Price

just buy the ram when you need to. no point of storing ram in the shelf as you just waste warranty time. also storing in a place with alot of dust may damage the ram so just buy it when you are going to install in on your computer.

Ram is heading a little higher right now since manufacturers are limiting production due to low prices. It shouldn't go up that much.
