It's time once again for AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard price guide.
The basic goal is to provide you with the best deals, and follow price trends of the listed products. We have selected a leading team of on-line vendors, and will be tracking their progress on weekly basis. Please note that all vendors were selected according to their best price offered. Some vendors may ask that you place a phone-order to make sure that you receive our listed price; others simply ask that you mention where you found the price (in this case AnandTech). We have tried to eliminate vendors with low feedback rating, but we do encourage you to do some research before purchasing any product from this list.
If you encounter any problems with a vendor on our list, please email us, and we will take appropriate action. Remember that we will only list vendors with positive customer feedback. If you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to let us know.
Also be sure to check out AnandTech's Hot Deals Forum for even more great memory, motherboard, CPU, video card and other technology buys.

Our last memory price guide which debuted at the start of the year showed memory prices in flux where some modules were up and some down. This week we see that for the most part memory prices are still falling but how long these drops will last is unknown so cash in while the prices are low. Overall there are quite a few significant price drops especially since Crucial has opened the PC1600 flood gates and is now selling those modules to the general public. A couple of PC133 modules are up in price and several have remained the same but again, prices are great making quality memory affordable for the end user.
In the motherboard arena we have started to find KT133A and AMD 760 chipset-based motherboards in the market thus we have added a few to our guide for the week. This should make the motherboard market very interesting in the coming months as KT133A and DDR solutions battle it out which will most likely drive prices down further, all the better for the buyer. In addition we've also added a few i815EP chipset motherboards to our list. If you remember, the i815EP chipset differs from the i815E in that there is no integrated video making it a cheaper solution.
For this week i815E motherboards have risen slightly more in price and KT133 boards are in motion with price drops and hikes yet for the present prices you can still get a solid motherboard for a great price.
