    Guys,

    Here are some good news, should you need to add more RAM to your pc :).

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/id,143729-pg,1/article.html

    "DRAM prices to fall another 10 percent in the second quarter of 2008.

    That second quarter DRAM price declines could be far worse than expected if DRAM makers unload inventory into the market

    Product gluts in most industries normally cause companies to cut production until the market improves. But that's not the case in DRAM. DRAM makers cannot afford to cut back on production in part due to the global credit crunch, and also over the fear of losing market share. The global credit crunch means it's harder for companies to find new funding, so DRAM makers need to keep selling chips - even at cut-rate prices - to ensure a steady flow of cash to fund continuing operations".

    Wow, how much cheaper can they get? A set of 2x1GB Ballistix can be had for $35-40 after MIR, and OCZ I've seen for $20 after MIR. Are they gonna start giving away for shipping only now?!
