I paid £120 for my 2GB geil ultra, now it is £60.

I was planning on selling it when my HZs arrived, but now I may keep them, if the price goes up again I can sell them then.

While I agree in spirit, those same rich *******s will likely lay off thousands of workers to comenpsate fo rthis loss in profits instead of actaully loosing any personal wages.

I paid 95 dollars for some PQI Turbo DDR400 2-3-2-5 (which is now doing 490~ 2.5-3-2-5 on 2.7 I think.)...I think I got a good deal at the time.. unfortunately now, they don't sell my RAM anymore, so I don't really think I'm going dual channel. I'll stick with 1gb, no reason to buy more DDR RAM :\
