Scott last year when I purchased ram a 16GB stick of DDR4 was around $100. Now it's double that. Edit:Just checked and it's actually down a little bit, same brand and everything. Down from $200 to $166. Still though, ram seems terribly expensive these days.

What do you think of this?. For someone like you Scott that's been doing this kind of thing since birth, Have you ever seen such dramatic price increases?. I don't know because I don't purchase ram all too often.

This has been going on since the computer industry began. It's about supply and demand, with a few major companies controlling the supply. Scott.

Well they were raised so high that now there is a Class action lawsuit claiming price fixing.
