    I wish these prices would affect the corsair dominator ram, I would love to see some 2133 MHz sticks for like 25 bucks

    One thing that may contribute to low demand is how Motherboard manufacturers limit the max memory now that a Windows 64bit OS holds more or less 50% of the market.

    Give us more slots and raise the memory max for cheaper motherboards. They don't advertise the benefits of having more memory... The free lunch is over - Tech people are buying up ram, but that is not enough since you are floading the market. We cannot keep up. I'm still on DDR2 and I have several machines. Only if I buy something new will I be upgrading. You got to advertise to the mainstream. Intel is doing it with their processors... educate people about memory. And make it less confusing.

    I do want to point out that the 8gb Ripjaws that I purchased during black friday sales were around $50 on sale. Now there normal price is below what I paid. OMG!

    I have my eye on the Corsair Vengeance 16GB LP DDR3-1600 kit for my next upgrade. I'm hoping for some more price drops in their excellent line although the prices at present are already very reasonable.
