I know for the past 3 months or so the price for all ram went skyhigh. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if prices for ram are ever going to come down again. I got 2x512mb now, I'm planning on keeping my socket939 setup for a while, so I'm looking for another pair of 2x512 ddr400 to plug into my system for upgrade. But with a simple search around the web and prices around 100$, it's kind of hard to click on the buy button for me.
Maybe prices will come down once Vista hits the market? Thanks. I'm also looking for a 512mb ddr2700 sodimm for my laptop. I remember seeing them for 30$ before, now it's like almost 60$ a piece. Sigh...
I know some of you might think it's better to save up for ddr2 systems. I always tell my friend why buy a c2d setup for ~$550, (e6300 ~180$, ddr800 ~220$, gigabyte ds3 ~150$) when I could get upgrade for my system for ~$240(opteron 165 ~$170, 2x512 ddr400 ~$70 hopefully). Yes of course, there are going to be some performance difference. But for a college student like me, I think socket939 is still having best bang for the buck, I think a lot of people are in the same boat as me. Why jump on to c2d bandwagon when you're in the boat with socket939 already.
I hope I didn't upset anyone, I'm not any fan boy at all, I'm just trying to get the most out of my hard earned partime money.
Thanks in advance for any kind of input.

RAM prices won't likely begin to drop until after VISTA has been released(i'm guessing ~6months). As prozac26 said, DDR will likely increase in price, or stay level. Have you priced PC133 SDRAM lately....crazy? :?
