    Almost certainly. Can't recall hearing of anything that can run 7 but not 8.

    You might want to wait a few months. Windows 10 will be out this summer and supposedly free for anyone using 7 or 8.

    Must be a lot of folks looking at the Amazon link. It went up already. :) Apparently, they started doing what Newegg does--Basing prices on query traffic.

    I agree on waiting. Windows 10 will be a FREE upgrade and there's no need to pay for upgrading to 8.1.

    Are you trying to say that prices fluctuate on Newegg just from people browsing ? Come on.

    This set of memory was $119 3 days ago, then it went $149, now it`s back to $119.

    What is causing this ? No way is it from people just looking at it.

    And look at the same sticks in blue or red, why the price difference ? Come on Newegg.

    It boils down to the simplest of marketing models--Supply and Demand. When demand is low and stock is high, a product goes on sale. When demand increases, stock goes down and prices go up. Manufacturers pay good money tracking internet queries and so do major retailers. They don't want to get caught with their pants down when an item becomes desirable. It's all about the money.

    I would wait on Windows 10. Although, if your computer has a Legacy BIOS, it may not be able to run 10.
