"Buyers of new personal computers beware! The upcoming churn in Random Access Memory (RAM) technology may make you the latest victim of media guru Marshall Mcluhan's famous mantra: 'If it works "it's obsolete.' ...
The problem is DDR3 memory, megabyte for megabyte, works out much costlier than DDR2.
Typically, this will change very fast once the world shifts more completely to DDR3 and in the end, the new memory will probably cost about the same as the old....
Should one stick with DDR2 for now in which case there is the danger that the mother board you buy today may have to be thrown away if and when you decide to upgrade to DDR3 (that could be as soon as a year from now). Remember, the mother board is one of the costliest hardware components of the PC.
