Well the prices change beacuse of the materials cost varies so much at times. Although I am not sure thats the whole reason why they cost so much since they were already created.
And my whole point was, I felt we are getting to closer to where even 6 or 8 gb of ram wont be enough for household computers (wont be anytime soon) but once more programs can run x64 and use more memory we could hit our limit.

Doesn't that use cpu power more than memory? Since all its doing is cpu intensive work?
