    What exactly does it mean by "spot price of around $1.80 for DDR2 667Mhz 1Gb"? Clearly the price of a 1GB stick of RAM has never been that low.

    I'm assuming they mean 1 Gbit chips

    so ~$2 per chip*8=~$16/GB

    it refers to the chips that you can see on the RAM:

    eg:
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...M_DDR2_512.jpg

    on this you can see 8, the spot price increase affects each chip on it, so the price increases overall
    so instead of $0.58*8 it's now $0.74*8

    Re: News - Price of DDR2 shoots up

    Just ordered myself an additional 4GB (to make 8GB total) or OCZ DDR2 ram for £35 before it gets expensive.

    Not bad, running at 1100MHz .

    Re: News - Price of DDR2 shoots up

    Play.com currently doing a stick of 2GB PNY PC2-6400 for £11.99. What are the chances of getting anything else that low in 2009? I might buy some even though I'll have nothing to stick it in for 6 months
