Somehow, memory prices just keep decreasing. Coupled with the ongoing financial crisis, this decrease has had a pretty negative effect on memory makers—iSuppli recently reported that the firms could see "serious liquidity issues" soon.
What's the upside of this? Well, memory keeps getting cheaper and cheaper, which definitely isn't a bad thing for consumers. While deal-hunting around the web today we spotted two eye-poppingly cheap 4GB DDR2-800 memory kits: Kingston currently sells such a kit for just $50 on its own online shop, and it apparently throws in a free 2GB USB thumb drive. This isn't the fastest memory out there, since it has a CAS latency of six, but it still runs at 800MHz, and latencies don't have that big of an impact on everyday performance.
If you'd like to pay a little more for a slightly faster kit, Kingston also sells a 4GB DDR2-800 dual-channel bundle with a CAS 5 latency for $58 (the listing on our price search engine says $60, but Kingston has a $2 "instant rebate" going). Both memory kits come with lifetime warranties.
