Memory prices continue their steady decline. It will be quite interesting to see in the coming months how long such drops will last but as of the moment prices are great. As mentioned earlier, PC133 has come down with the highest price drops being with CAS2/CAS3 256MB modules. With the sweet spot for Windows 2000 being 256MB this is a very attractive type of module to purchase.

DDR SDRAM for the most part is still on the fall as more and more DDR-compatible motherboards enter the market. On the RDRAM front, Intel will be soon launching a massive Pentium 4 ad campaign meaning that we may see one of three events take place: greater price drops as more P4 systems ship, shortened supply caused by the increased demand or RDRAM prices may simply stabilize due to increased presence in the market. In any case, the memory market will be interesting to watch in the future.
