    I was just checking some prices and I noticed good news for those on the lookout for some new DDR4 memory. Prices have been keeping falling at an incredible pace and where a DDR 16 GB kit did cost 16...

    My kit I bought 2 years ago - Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) 3200MHz CL16 - cost around $170 back then. Now it's $150ish. Not much of drop, but a drop nonetheless.

    This. If one was to buy DDR4 before the minin craze, the drop isn't as big. But it's good to see them coming down again. Makes me wonder when DDR5 will come around, though... clearing stocks for 2020?

    So, we're almost at 2016 prices. I remember paying about $70 for the 16GB I have now.

    Buying an 32GB ram at decent speeds can still be costly.

    I bought 64gb ram for $250 8x8gb. It’s now $700. Not cheap at all.

    Wait......................... Most tech sites were scaring us claiming since November 2018 that prices will skyrocket in late January or early March because of Trump. Thank god I held out, and will now build my new rig with some nice cheap SSD and RAM.

    Yeah, they drop on the charts in the internet.
    I have yet to see a single DRR4 memory reasonable priced at retailers.

    This was Gigabyte's statement back in September. As you can see memory would not be affected.
    Also I think the second set of tariffs have been delayed by the Trump administration as they're making progress in trade talks.

    Like their SSDs, Samsung is trying really hard to keep their DRam chip prices higher... shopping for B-die sticks is a little cheaper, but lots of room for improvement!

    ...;) You can always tell which "tech sites" read the fake news sites, and which don't...;)

    I paid $180 in 2017 for my Patriot 2x8 3200MHz set--now selling @ an unreal $94 via Amazon! Price drop has definitely hit here!

    Yep in Canada too :

    Bought G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) June 2018 for 77.99 CAD and it's now seeling for 48.99
    Bought G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) November 2017 for 312.99 CAD and it's now selling for 262.99 CAD.

    I have a Crosshair Hero VI anyone know if i put 4 x 8GB if the motherboard will still work in dual channel? I had troubles in the past enabling dual channel with all 4 slots occupied on Asus motherboards. 262.99 is still too expensive but if it keeps coming down to 200$ i might upgrade to be more future proof.

    Yeah that's great & everything. RAM is cheaper. BUT everything else just skyrocketed. CPU prices & GPU prices are still outrageous... Motherboards, well... It's ridiculous.

    The premium kit I bought in 2016 for ~230€ is still at 380 and hasn't moved that much. That was a G.Skill 32GB 3200 CL14 kit though, thats a pretty good sweetspot on timings and bandwidth IMHO.
    For work I've been running a bunch of VMs lately and thought about upgrading the system to 64GB, but not while I pay almost double of what I paid originally.

    The high-end GPU market is crazy expensive right now, but the mid-range is not so bad. SSDs and AMD 2xxx series CPUs are also pretty cheap. With RAM going down now and Zen 2 on the horizon, I'd say it's a pretty good time to be building a PC.

    You're right on about Intel CPUs and motherboards, though... they've been creeping up the last few years. I've had Intel for loooong time, but their price/performance/power ratio is getting pretty bad. Reminds me a bit of the Pentium 4 days.
