New price is $189.99!!!!


This kit generally plays very well with DFI. I own 4 modules and they are fantastic. If money at all enters you decision-making process, its hard to beat this kit.


G.Skill PC4000 2x1gb kit = $189.99 plus shipping

G.Skill's product page for this kit ( Model #: F1-4000USU2-2GBHZ )
http://www.gskill.co...0usu2-2gbhz.htm

Page posted by G.Skill Tech at XS (includes results and some benches, your questions should be answered by G.Skill employee)
http://www.xtremesys...ead.php?t=75199

Total price is: $189.99 + $4.81shipping = $194.80

If any mod should happen to see this, my thread title could use a price upgrade...

Actually you can save another buck by going to Newegg's Chiefvalue site :)

OCZ version of Samsung UCCC for $230.

OCZ customer support is 100x better. I would pay $13 more bucks for that.

BUDGET!

Of course there's better. But this is the best value/performance 2x1gb kit I have seen. 2x1gb @ 250MHz for $217, no mail in rebates, no BS. Theres just as many people out there trying to make a budget work as there are insane overclockers.

Just trying to spread the happy to those of us who must observe moderate spending from time to time.

Maybe the price went down because Samsung was convicted for price gougeing.

All RAM is overpriced.
Does anybody really think it takes them over $100 to make a stick of RAM?

It probably only costs $100 or more to make 2 1GB sticks. $100+ is profit for OCZ and the pocket change is for Newegg. Sort of like an Ipod. The Ipod costs 110 to make and they sell them to consumers for 250. 100+ for Apple and the pocket change for who ever sells it.

Not directly, but it costs them $100 times whatever they make in 4 years to build the factories than are then idleing 2 of the 4 years (which was the original problem the cartel wanted to solve).

I didn't notice OCZ was putting out gigabyte sticks with the new heatspreaders. Nice RAM.

Bumpo. I see alot of folks asking for the best 2x1gb kit. If value at all enters you criteria, this is great. Afew more ram MHz isn't worth the money thats better spent on a better vga or an Opteron before the s939 discontinue is on.
