Re: Prices finally coming down?

Can't comment on RAM, but SSD (or more specifically the memory chips in an SSD) are expected to drop in price quite a lot over the coming months. This assuming all the tech press and tech analysts are correct of course.

The switch to higher density 3D memory, from tri to quad cells, and some new FABs coming on line, all contributing to a predicted flood into the market of much cheaper flash memory into early next year.

So if you are looking at buying an SSD, especially if it's in the 1TB+. I'd give it a few more months.

This site has some nice graphs showing price trends for SSD and HDD (based on actual sale prices, rather than recommended retail etc:

(They also have graphs for RAM and GFX cards on the same site).
