    Well, I've always known that one of my old Dell PCs uses RD RAM...

    This is the ram:

    My question is, why is Random Access Memory so expensive? I've googled it, and most people are just saying because "it can run more than one app at a time". I tend not to believe these statements; I'm thinking I should buy a new cheap mobo for this rig with some new cheap memory, and a cheap 400w psu.

    rdram =rambus, random access memory = ram

    have a look on ebay, you might be able to pick some up off there for cheap

    Ahh...my mistake. However, what makes the price so high? Why is this ram so special?
