Quick everyone to Newegg and Tiger Direct! Grab your credit cards, buy RAM till supply meets demand! It's what I did and couldn;t be happier.

 When RAM was $50 a MB (back in the day) there was only a handfull of makers of SIMMs out there.  Most of them wernt fancy at all and just had a makers name on the chips and you had to know how to read the chip lables to know what kind of RAM you had.  Now, everyone in their mother makes memory and it has flooded the market.  Yes, a few makers are going to have to leave the arena for RAM to regain it's value.  It's all a matter of who will make the plunge.

I can only proof read my own work so many times, then the eyes see what's supposed to be there rather than what is actually there...Not the first time, and won't be the last, I assure you.

I guess I just dont understand. It doesnt seem like the low price of ram is the problem, its the fact that too many different companies are mass producing it so no one company is getting a lot of business.

It would seem to me that if the ram continued at the same prices but with less manufacturers then they wouldnt be complaining ... or would they?

They are making enough per stick they are just getting gready and want to hike prices. Unless execs are making millions they aren't happen .. and even when they are they still want more.

All the companies are doing it right now. How much can I milk from one product. :/
