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.

This week we continue to see price drops in both the memory and motherboard sectors. As with our last guide, PC133 SDRAM is still a great buy for anyone upgrading with price drops as great as 27%. Both DDR SDRAM and RDRAM keep falling as more and more solutions employing both of these memory standards continues to grow.
In the motherboard sector things have been quiet with some slight Socket-A and Socket-370 mainboard price drops. We've added a couple of new boards to the list including a KT133A, AMD 760, and an i850 board. Though price drops are minimal, in general motherboard prices have continually been on the decline. KT133A-based motherboards are becoming more available and have come down in price this week and in general have been cheaper than AMD 760-based boards. For the end user, this means that you can find a KT133A solution which has present day performance comparable to that of an AMD 760 solution for the fraction of the cost. If you're not in the market for either a KT133A or AMD 760 board KT133 and i815E motherboards are available at great prices making either platform very attractive for the upgrader.
