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.

Welcome to the Second Edition of AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard Price Guide for April.
With this week's guide prices have gone more in the direction of stabilization marked by the unchanged prices of many memory modules as well as quite a few motherboards. Since our last guide Crucial has now begun to sell their PC2100 DDR SDRAM modules which are significantly cheaper than what was currently available in the market. RDRAM is actually in flux this week with a big price hike and price drops. Most PC133 and PC100 modules have remained the same or dropped slightly.
Prices amongst Socket-370/Slot-1/Socket-423 motherboards have not changed much and in some cases not at all. There are no price hikes to report but only several scattered price drops with the exception of Pentium 4 boards which continue their downward plunge. This correlates with the continued plunge in prices of the Pentium 4 processor as reported in our CPU and Video Card Price Guide.
Though the drops are not that great, most Socket-A boards have fallen in price including some DDR boards which is no surprise. We've also added a new motherboard to the Socket-A DDR list which is the VIA KT266-based Microstar K7T Pro266 making three choices for a Socket-A DDR solution available.
