It sucks that prices are going back up but they need to make money to. We have known this was going to happen for a long time. Its just to bad that i had to put off my new build to Feb.

I got 16 gig DDR3 from new egg for $50 shipped last week, could not pass it up.  It was GSkills Ripjaw series.  I installed it is my system (Win 7), downloaded a free (up to 4 gig) ram drive app and it makes a difference.  You will read online allot of opinions about the topic, the fact is it is worth doing if the price is low enough.  I have 12 gig of useable memory, so I moved my swap file to the ram drive and made it 1gig max.  Why not turn it right off, compatibility with old apps, you get the same effect limiting it, but your system will be more stable.  Move my IE temp files there, IE is way faster, and all the junk files just disappear on shutdown.  I redirected Photoshop’s temp location there and my audio ripper converter there, makes a big difference for those apps as well. Lots of other cool stuff possible, drop a vmware xp file in there and launch it, boots XP is like 3 seconds.
