Ddr3 ram price increase

i built my computer back in april 2009 and i bought 6gb ddr3 ram for 85$ on newegg, i dont think it was some random sale because there was several different brands and speeds of 6gb (3x2gb) ram for under 100$, now its all >140$ and the exact same ram i bought is now 170$

was just wondering since im building a computer for a friend

  1. Are you sure it wasn't on sale? Or that you're looking at the same sticks (same speed, same CAS Latency, same brand)?

    I've been watching frequently since June/July last year, and 4 GB DDR3 1333 mhz was about $90 then. It dropped a little in late fall/early winter, and then increased to about $100 for 4 GB soon after the New year. I highly doubt the price doubled in a couple of months...
  2. eh...I paid $155 for this set in Feb. of 2009. It's currently $190

    all ram was this cheap unless i wanted to get something that was a lot faster, but i dont think it was on sale
  4. Yeah, the triple channel OCZ Platinum DDR3 at 1600 MHz and CAS 7 was $95 when I bought it in late May. Now they're $207 on amazon.
  5. @blueheh: That's only about a 20% increase, which is on pace with the increase I noted above. That's no where near the 100% price increase suggested...
  6. That invoice doesn't actually say anything about any sales. It will only show what you paid for it. You'd need to find a picture of the shopping cart. That would show any instant savings or other specials.
  7. 85$>170$ seems like a little more then 20%..
  8. I didn't say that was 20%. That's the 100% increase. The (about) 20% is the 90=>110 and the 155=>190.
  9. I remember DDR3 prices changing daily on newegg when I built my system (triple channel was still somewhat new). At times, the platinum OCZ set was cheaper than the slower (speed and CAS) gold set...made no sense.
  10. That's how the 4 GB Ripjaws sets are right now. The 1600 mhz/CL 7 sets are the same price as both the 1600 mhz/CL 8 and 1333 mhz/CL 7 sets.
  11. That guys right what I bought for 94 has now gone up to 140! crazy increases to say its been so long since ddr3 was introduced. Stop been difficult mad admiral
