Deal of the week: $69.99 for 2GB of DDR2-667 RAM
As memory prices kept falling in the first part of this year, we selected system memory for a good number of our deal posts. Those deals were especially interesting because many sources predicted that prices would hike back up in the second half of this year, which indeed ended up happening to some extent. However, that doesn't mean there are no longer any interesting memory deals out there: one just needs to look a bit harder.
For this week's deal post, we've come upon this 2GB kit of DDR2-667 Crucial memory over at Newegg. The kit only costs $69.99, which is roughly in the same ballpark as some of the lowest prices we saw earlier this year. Considering Crucial is a major brand and the kit is covered by a lifetime warranty, $69.99 for 2GB of RAM is definitely quite tantalizing—especially with new PC games like Crysis, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Unreal Tournament 3, and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars on the horizon.
