    DDR-2 is cheaper to manufacturer than DDR-1, due to the reduced die size. Also, since DDR-2 has been mainstream for a while now the price has dropped further due to mass production compared to when it was first released.

    Cheap memory is great for all!

    What do you have? Only systems built in the last year - year and a half will most likely have support.

    I keep thinking most of you guys are from the UK, I don't know why.

    If I wanted to buy this, would anyone be willing to get it, and ship it to me in Canada?

    The deals on TigerDirect aren't as good right now..

    RAM is so cheap right now, a while back almost every set of DDR2 memory I looked at on Newegg had a massive Mail in rebate, I saw some 2GB kits of name brand memory in the 40 dollar range after rebates.

    Newegg doesn't ship to Canada?

    My dad just showed me (once I said TigerDirect don't have good prices) a bunch of memory for good prices, so never mind on that last post.

    Aw man. Now I have to buy a computer part. Good thing forgiveness is easier to obtain than permission! Wives are great...

    If you're into rebates, check this out! $35 for 2GB after rebates.
