I bought 8gb of gskill at 1333 ram 2 years ago for £25, now I cant find anywhere that sell at a price similar, the cheapest branded ram i can find is £67 on ebuyer!

Am I missing something? is there somewhere i can purchase from to get similar prices?

Is it possible to get 16gb ddr3 at 1333 or higher for less than £50?

Thanks

I believe this is because of the explosion at the worlds biggest ram factory about a month ago since then prices have started rising due to supply and demand.

there been a few issues. one of the ram vendors went under (lost to much money and folded). There also was a big fire and a main ram fab.
