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 First Edition of AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard Price Guide for the month of May.
Summer has started and just like the weather outside the prices are hot. In our last guide, we pondered how long the "good" prices for memory would last and low and behold prices have dropped this week and in many cases the price changes are quite significant. Many PC2100, PC1600, RDRAM, and a good deal of PC133 modules have dropped anywhere from 10 to 20% in price making these modules quite affordable and upgrading very convenient.
Motherboards usually don't take the plunge in prices as memory sometimes does, but this week a fair amount of Slot-1/Socket-370/Socket-423 and Socket-A motherboards have come down in price. Prices for i850, VIA Pro266, VIA KT133A, AMD 760, and ALi Magik 1-based motherboards have followed the trend of weeks past as prices for a good deal of boards in these categories have dropped.
