I would disagree with wusy in that matched pairs is a way to rip people off. The memory I got was cheaper going with teh matched pairs, than buying the 2 sticks seperate.
Or you aren't looking on Froogle hard enough. :wink:
Don't froogle a whole lot. What I usually do is hit my 4 or 5 favorite sites and compare. (Zipzoomfly, newegg, monarch, digitallyunique, etc...)...From what I can see, the matched pairs are always cheaper....It is the whole "buy in bulk" mentality. Buy 1 for 100, but buy 2 for 190.
Single for 121:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145560
Matched pair for 188 (also happens to include a 50 rebate so 138):http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16820145575
So tell me where in the heck you think matched pairs are a rip off. EVen with out the 50 rebate, 188 for matched pair kit or buy 2 singles for 242.
Hmm, perhaps you need to stop froogling and actually investigate on your own.
