Default Ram is ultra cheap now!

Last time I looked on new egg, 2 gigs of DDR2 ram cost about $150 and now it's down to $50. What the hell happened in the past year and a half?!

Haha, I don't know but for people in the UK, this package is a steal. Its the stuff I have in my system and it only gave me problems at first because of the voltage setting my motherboard gave to them.

Amazing deal:

If I wanted 4GB's (not supported on my 32bit Windows), I'd definietly buy another 2Gb's...

I want to play Crysis so bad now that I've played the demo on this POS. After doing the math, I can build a Crysis ready PC for $700. That's everything besides the sound card, DVD drive and monitor. I can probably make about $300 off of the ram from this old PC. After looking at how cheap everything has gotten since I last looked, I definately want to put one together now, I just need $700.
