    Is there any reason why generic 512mg DDR400 sticks are now $55 each
    and hynix 1gig DDR sticks are $140 each

    ?????

    This is the cheapest... I have ever seen memory prices at... ever...


    Edit .. the prices are from MSY...

    where is it 55 might grab a few more :)
    my guess is an over abundance of the stuff and the dollar.

    Thanks for the head up, ram has dropped big time and I didn't know it.
    The cheapest I can find in perth is a PLE: generic 512MB sticks $62, kingmax super ram $85 or netplus: generic $62, hyundai hynix $88. None of them are listing cheap 1gb sticks though

    yeah memory and even flash memory prices have fallen probably due to fall in US dollar against Australian dollar :)

    i.e. http://www.powerinnumbers.com.au/ has a huge discount sale on flash memory picked up a few things myself hehe

    No but the Taiwanese and Koreans want payments in USD.

    Sounds like a glut in the market.

    there was a pre-warning at TCM site about 1 month ago, about RAM prices dropping, and good for that ay....its actually starting, hope that the XMS4400c25 is lower, best default DDR550 out so far.

    Yeah, the drop is pretty drastic. At MSY, the Hyundai 1GB was $290 just a few days ago. Now it's $140! :wired:

    good luck finding 1gb for $90 :lol:

    cheapest I've seen Geil value 2 x 512 (1gb) is $182 www.umart.net (25-03-05) which is good concidering it was around $225+ about 5 weeks ago :shock:

    Just hope it stays this cheap for another few weeks :p
