    62 dollars for a GT 630 with GDDR5. There is no way currency conversion losses and "different taxes" will cause a discrepancy that big. Nice try, but I'm calling shenanigans.

    Anybody buying a DDR3 GPU these days needs their head examined TBH. If you're still using DDR3, stick with your on-board/on-die GPU.

    The DDR3 kit price hike is not surprising. Was going to happen sooner or later. I suppose Haswell/Broadwell's 1150 socket mobos will be the first transition into DDR4 the same way socket 775's X38 platform transitioned to DDR3. I've got all the DDR3 kits I'll ever need now anyways. The next time I'll be upgrading will be for Skylake/Skymont and I'll settle for no less than 96GB DDR4 RAM.

    1usd = 54rs. that makes it =100$

    price rise has become so idiotic that its cheaper if we just buy it from newegg and have them export it to us directly. lol.
