    That sounds good. I need a couple more drives and some more DDR4.

    Been wanting to upgrade some of my drives to SSDs. But you know, price drops seem to not affect Australian pricing as much so I'll have to wait and see...

    I would imagine sales of everything are down due to the mega job losses and business closures happening right now.

    Now if only manufacturers bothered to make more PCIe 4.0 SSDs to create competition and choices.

    Considering the same nvme drive I bought nearly 2 years ago is still more expensive right now (extra 30%) than it was 2 years ago, these price drops still may not even get us back to where we were.

    I've yet to see these price drops on chips realize any price drops on consumer products. Here's hoping though!

    I hope u ignored the "experts", & avoided b450 for ur rig, & so, can opt to invest in much preferred nvme for ur x570.

    My older and faster NVMe is now like 20% cheaper.
    My newer and bit slower NVMe is now 15% more expensive... likely because RGB went up in price enough to compensate for NAND price drop. :D
    And my latest storage SSD has not really moved its price.

    Think they want to sell out their stock first or wait it out for the fist online store to dump prices.

    let me know when SSD can be had at $50 for per tb or less $100 for 1tb sdd is still to much. I like my all ssd system but the 100$ i spent on that 860 evo 1tb was not worth price other then fact it make only noise coming from my system being the fans the speed difference between it and hdd I was using it not noticeable cause it was mostly use for just game and storage in first place.

    I found a Crucial 2TB SSD for $190 recently. I don't yet need it, but I have been in the market to replace the storage in my home server. I'm hoping Black Friday or Cyber Monday will have something for a little cheaper. I don't need anything super fast since it's network storage anyway, so I don't care if I lose some performance.

    Depends on the capacity. Seems like the ~500GB level is the sweet spot, where you can get something from a reputable brand for as little as $0.09/GB.
