    Question Hardware prices

    Okay, I have seen very low RAM prices lately.

    But then, I just went to Best Buy lately, and they had 128 MB of RAM to like $150.

    Is Best Buy REALLY expensive, or did hardware prices suddenly skyrocket?

    RDRAM is very expensive. 150 bucks for 128Meg seems about right. That's probably what you saw...

    No, $150 is not at all reasonable for 128 megs of ram, RDRAM or not. It's a hardcore ripoff, like the people trying to sell a voodoo 3 3000 for $180 that I saw a couple days ago.
