Price Guides July 2004: Video Cards and Memoryby Vinney Shimpi on July 30, 2004 6:00 AM EST

IntroductionWelcome back to this week's Price Guide, covering video cards and DDR memory. Ever since NVIDIA released their NV40 platform and ATI released their R420, we've all been waiting patiently for prices on the last generation of cards to drop, thus far, to no avail. Unfortunately, it seems that we still have a bit more waiting to do until older cards drop in price, or for NV40 and R420 to become available in any real quantities. In the meantime, both companies battle it out on the benchmarking battlefield and vie for your hard earned dollars.
Similarly, DDR memory prices seem to be unrelenting these days. The last few weeks showed a rather small break in the rising prices and, in some cases, even showed some small drops. Sadly, those prices are back on the rise again for no apparent or good reason.
As always, be sure to visit our RealTime Pricing Engine to view these price changes, for better or worse, and see the movers and shakers for yourself.
