Default Pricing Error??

G.SKILL F2-6400CL5D-2GBNQ PC2-6400 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-800 CL5-5-5-15 240PIN Dual Channel Memory Kit - $102.60 at Direct Canada.

Pricing error?? NCIX has it for $51.99. I'm looking at making the jump on Friday with the ordering of my first new system in over eight years. Been leaning towards Direct Canada because of their free shipping but that $50 would certainly be the deal breaker for me.

That does seem way off. Can you provide links to the memory on both DirectCanada and NCIX?

It's not a pricing error at all. Actually NCIX normally charges $114.99 for them but they are sale for $51.99 till the 19th.

Really?? Oh man, that sucks. According to a customer review they were going for $47 at Direct Canada in December.

That's Ram prices though they do fluctuate and I think right now they maybe back on the rise. I'm glad I got my G.SKILL F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK PC2-8500 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-1066 CL5-5-5-15 - $79.99

$114.99 is indeed the regular price. Damn! Not that I was seriously questioning your integrity, BALISTX.

No prob, I know you weren't. I know when you see a huge price difference like that you think to yourself "WTF? That can't be right."
