Default Re: Ram Prices Are Going Up!!!

i was expecting something along the lines of the price doubling... but if the g-skill price goes up, i'll just buy crucial ballistix............ but i think because of July 22nd, newegg is expecting a lot of buys.... so i would have predicted this happening... guess newegg needs the extra 10$ from each RAM Kit........

The ram I was going to order

Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

went up 10 dollars from 104.99 to 114.99. I wouldn't panic, it's only 10 dollars. Not sure if every other RAM that newegg sells has increased.

really good business technique... since demand is high, and ppl want to buy it desperately..... ppl wanna take advantage of cheap stuff.... newegg gets an extra 10$ per person.... but ppl will still buy the RAM because its cheap.......

If prices go up another $10 I'm going to start recommending these over the g.skills. They would be the same price if you add shipping and subtract the rebate.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

You guys should hurry up and get these Crucial Ballistix DDR2-800 CAS4 also.
After the rebate, that deal just rocks.

Mwave generally has better prices on Crucial Memory than Newegg - and you can upgrade to 2nd day fedex for like 30 cents.

Um G.skill HZ's are much better than those XMS2 lol.... the HZ's have D9 micron chips in them while no Corsair modules are guaranteed to have D9's until their DDR2-1066 models.
