Angry RAM $$$ going up ?? :(

I noticed the Ram on newegg and everywhere, the price goes up really fast. It was 81 bucks a month ago, and now it is 104. Why? Isn't hardware supposed to get cheaper as new one come out? I am talking specifically about the Corsair 512MB Value Ram DDR400 Cas 2.5

Prices fluctuate often.

Just keep an eye on them. You can go to www.pricewatch.com it tells you if the price is higher or lower than normal.

If you REALLY want RAM THAT bad, just check www.ebay.com

You will find LOTS of good buys there on RAM, and even other PC components, such as VERY powerful video cards for pretty cheap prices.

If Ebay doesnt do anything good for ya, check www.pricewatch.com They have some good prices on RAM there also......

I believe the price is supposedly going up because of a shortage of Winbond chips

The price never went down, only up. And I looked on ebay, they only have 3 of them, and not DDR400.
