40 bucks off, nice...

Now this is starting to get expensive, but it's so tempting...

I thought they were always over 140. I don't know if I can be spending all this money on the RAM though. I might just end up getting those $80 G. Skills as I don't feel like farcing around with rebates, as I am pushing my budget.

EDIT:

WTF, I hate memory prices

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

They were just 80 bucks not to long ago. Memory prices fluctuate way too much.

No way! I mean they're probably not worth it for a regular gamer, but I could not live without my steel pad.

Okay I just put the order in, total was $606 before shipping.

I went with the EVGA 8800GTX and the 2GB of G.Skill (the red sticks).
