DDR2 will only get more expensive as DDR3 is already mainstream and supply for DDR2 is steadily dropping.

i just bought 4GB for a new build, and was having the same dilemma...

i grabbed these Corsairs from Newegg. not $64.99 like they were a month ago, but not totally ridiculous... yet.

Try to find a nice used DDR2 kit from someone who's building a new DDR3 rig. If you absolutely must buy new DDR2 RAM, buy as soon as possible.

Oh man when I upgrade my rig around Xmas, I might almost make a profit in selling my 8GB of DDR2-1066. I never imagined this.
