If you wish to upgrade your 6400 ram ddr2, you better buy now! This is a warning, ddr3 is taking over soon. I have watched the ddr2 prices rise a lot in the last 2 weeks. Buy,Buy,Buy!

Yesterday, I did a quick search/comparison of prices for DDR2 800/PC2 6400...I saw a lot of $80-90 for 4GB prices, which I feel is cheap.

Newegg and TigerDirect were my primary vendors I looked at.

It's normal for faster RAM to become preferred, IME...which is OK with me.

IMO, DDR2 isn't going away, just as DDR still remains readibly obtainable for those who want/need it.

FWIW: Dated, but useful, http://www.build-gaming-computer-guide.com/ddr3-vs-ddr2.html.

DDR2 RAM hasn't changed that much in price over the year and a half since i built my computer. In fact, my 4GB of DDR2 800 is 5$ more, but I think back then it was on sale for 10$ less than normal.

the stuff I use has remained pretty much the same as well. some people actually prefer the slower ram because of the tighter timings.

Well, DDR3 is slowly becoming mainstream , thereby causing an increase in the prices of DDR2 sticks.
Nothing new in the world of memory modules though, they fluctuate based on the demand.

ya theres been a little fluctation, but i dunno it hasnt been to bad. granted the actual price of the memory modules I use actually went up 25 bucks on paper, they still come with like a 30 dollar rebate, so with the rebate theyre really the same price if not a slight but lower then when I bought them originally. :D

My DDR2 1066 (2 x 1GB) has definitely gone up.
When I bought it (GeIL Black Dragon) back in May '09, it was $37, now it's $58.
If I remember right, the price jump happened about 2 months after I bought it. :thumbsup:
