Leading the pack in price drops is undoubtedly the 256MB module of PC800 RDRAM. As we have seen in the past and probably will continue to see in the future, RDRAM will continue its downward turn in price due to the increase of RDRAM-based solutions which are gaining in numbers. Not too far behind RDRAM is DDR SDRAM with also large price drops, specifically 256MB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM leading the way dropping in price to $260. As with RDRAM, DDR SDRAM will most likely continue to fall in price as we see more DDR-based solutions enter the market. We recently learned that Crucial is offering 128MB of PC2100 DDR SDRAM for $60.29 however these modules are only certified for use with Gigabyte DDR motherboards so if you do plan on buying these modules do so at your own risk.

PC133 and PC100 memory continue to drop in price this week although the drops are not as pronounced as we have seen in past weeks which could be foreshadowing a coming stabilization in price. Nonetheless, 256MB modules of both PC133 CAS2 and CAS3 are still a steal with prices at $94.50 and $66 respectively.
