I know what you mean. A while back I went into a small local pc store for the first and last time. I was checking prices and selection since I had never been in the store, and was curious as to what they had to offer. First thing I looked at was their selection of ram, and the best they had was some no-name ram that only came in single 1gb sticks, and they were about 100.00 each! Further inspection showed that it was only pc2 5300 as well. :3eyes: I just laughed and walked out.
