Why RAM is so cheap right now
 
Quote:

Amid plunging prices and expanded factory output -- which is forcing some manufacturers to sell their chips below the costs to produce them -- all DRAM makers are expected to lose money this quarter for the first time since 2001, according to one semiconductor researcher.

I hear you nagasama. Paid $260 for mine, and I hate seeing much better ram for less than half. I think we should buy up these cheap prices, before they sky rocket again.

Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

If some companies are selling at below cost, then its best to buy now because there never going to be this low again.
