So, does this mean prices will drop on RAM in the near future? I'm looking to get 6GB more for my system, it's already at $75 dollars and I'm hoping it'll drop even lower. Certainly hope it won't get phased out before I get a chance to buy it.

Why isn't the same thing happening to DDR2?  (got a DDR2 board a few months ago)

Because RAM makers are slowly stopping making DDR2 and are now making DDR3.

 

It's the same thing that happened when we switched from DDR to DDR2. The demand for DDR2 is low which makes sales low which makes RAM makers produce less and so the cost goes up.
