Memory Pricing Guide

Biweekly Memory Prices - Week of October 4, 2010

By Staff October 8, 2010

Welcome memory mavens and DRAM detectives to another installment of our biweekly memory price guide, in which we rev up the price search engines to bring you up-to-date buying info for a wide variety of desktop PC DDR2 and DDR3. Look for savings on your favorite module kits below, and see page 3 for details on how we find these prices.

Dual-Channel DDR2

Here, we are concentrating on DDR2-800 and DDR2-1066 modules. We currently track a variety of matched-pair DDR2 kits, including 2x1GB, 2x2GB and 2x4GB configurations. As a rule of thumb, we seek out performance/gaming modules with low CAS latencies and try to let the chart represent a range of manufacturers, product lines and vendors.

We saw almost as many prices move upward as down in the dual-channel DDR2 chart this time around. Thankfully, though, the biggest of the increases was only $5, while the biggest decrease was a $24 drop in the tracked price of the Crucial Ballistix DDR2-1066 2x2GB kit.
