That's TODAY ONLY. Deal ends on 5/12
That's 2x4GB of DDR 1333 for $70.
Not sure if you'd call that a Hot Deal, certainly seems to pale a little compared to the recent deals posted here (by JAE), but still seems pretty sweet.
1. I guess the big question is, should I pull the trigger? I do kind of regret not hopping on one of the earlier deals posted and getting 2x4 GB PC 1600 for 70 or less, but I was also still working out my build budget and trying to figure out what I wanted to spend on.
2. TR had an article
exploring the effect of memory speed on Sandy Bridge builds suggests that spending $70 for DDR 1333, is about as good as spending $70 for DDR 1600. In which case, I shouldn't feel ok with pulling the trigger, yes?
3. New Egg seems to have deals on memory every week or so. They're still pretty frequent, which is why I didnt pull the trigger earlier (planning my build to happen around September or so). I figure there will be other chances later, perhaps on brands/modules I want more. Of course, im asking myself that same question now. Does it make sense to wait, if there will probably be more sales later?
