My System Specs

Default Price Check - DDR3 RAM and mSATA

With RAM prices going insane, I'm not sure what the right price would be for a brand new, sealed 16GB kit of GSkill Ripjaws. DDR3, 2x8GB, 1866, CL10.

I also have a new Samsung 500GB 850 EVO mSATA drive. And I have a new mSATA adapter to go with it if necessary. Not sure on the demand for mSATA drives? Was intended for a laptop, but never made it there.

Anyone?

I'm thinking roughly $135 for the RAM and $225 for the mSATA drive?

BNIB I'd say more like 110-120 for the ram.
SSD ya maybe. I'm not as current with those prices.

I'm not sure about mSATA demand either but that drive is currently still selling on Newegg.ca on sale for $50 off right now for $249.99 CAD. So $225 for yours seems like a good deal to the right person I would think.

What is the mSATA adaptor? I mean mSATA to what?

Hmmm, yeah that is the one. I'll think about it a bit. Maybe I'll just throw it in to my rig as a data drive.
