its not cheap at all. 255 dollars for 1GB of RAM. That is pretty expensive. A motherboard can support that if it supports DDR2. They make speeds so high is because Intels can use a forward multiplier so the RAM runs at 1000mhz but the FSB is slower. Intels like this extra bandwidth.

255 bucks for 1ghz of ram... realistically it seems cheap.. bestbuy, circuit city are selling it for $495... you think 250 is steep?

you can get 2GB of high end DDR2 for 300 dollars. It may not be D9 fatbodies, but they work very very well. Mushkin XP2-5300 (2X1GB) goes for 346 directly off Mushkin. (http://mushkin.com/doc/products/memo...erformance.asp) They give almost the same performance, just a tad under.
