Patriot PC3-15000 DDR3 1866MHz 2GB RAM Kit

BenchmarkReviews show us if this memory is worth the money:

Many of the readers will probably not consider DDR3 an important part of the hardware market just yet, and in a very few ways I can agree with them. It's expensive, and it's not going to change their system from a 2 to a 10. But I think that this argument only exists if you have missed the point: DDR3 is a more efficient replacement over DDR2, but high-speed DDR3 is intended for overclockers and enthusiasts almost exclusively. In a year from now, expect to have DDR3 pressed into your new motherboard. However for today, the demand behind DDR3 and its high-speed variants is best met by the growing number of hardware enthusiasts which push their equipment well past the stock settings.

At ~$90, what's the problem? Ah, I see, the price quote probably refers to the cardboard and plastic package the RAM comes in, not the actual DIMMs. The "Numbers and specs" are all new to me, I have to adjust my calibration to understand them. Thanks for the review, Gizmo.

Where did you see the $90 quote? The article mentioned that these bad boys list for about $550?

Ah. Are you sure those prices were for the same memory? Newegg currently lists that particular memory at $550. I also noticed those ads (which for some reason aren't showing right now), but they WEREN'T for that type of RAM; rather they were for some cheaper memory.

The plot thickens. Or I'm thick. Or both.
