I mentioned a while back that RAM prices were cheap and that upgrading to 512MB pretty much rules. Prices have dropped a little since then, with some 256MB DIMMs going for under 50 bucks on Pricewatch (profit-earning "shipping" charges may apply, thoughcaveat emptor). This, along with my KT133A testing, has led me to consider buying even more RAM for myself.
Now, CNET news reports that memory prices may have bottomed out finally, perhaps signaling an upswing in the whole of the PC market. You know what this means: time to buy yourself some RAM, before prices go back up. A gig of PC133 is less than a GeForce2 Ultra, so why not, right?
