Have you bought any memory recently? I did and I see a difference when I paid 30 dollars shipped for one stick, then a week later I paid 40 dollars for another stick of the same ram shipped. I have bought this ram for literally as far back as 3 years ago. It was always cheaper and now all of a sudden it went up in price. You need to see a newegg invoice to prove it? I do have one but I don't feel like dealing with it for something I know is true..
