It's time once again for AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard price guide.
The basic goal is to provide you with the best deals, and follow price trends of the listed products. We have selected a leading team of on-line vendors, and will be tracking their progress on weekly basis. Please note that all vendors were selected according to their best price offered. Some vendors may ask that you place a phone-order to make sure that you receive our listed price; others simply ask that you mention where you found the price (in this case AnandTech). We have tried to eliminate vendors with low feedback rating, but we do encourage you to do some research before purchasing any product from this list.
If you encounter any problems with a vendor on our list, please email us, and we will take appropriate action. Remember that we will only list vendors with positive customer feedback. If you have any suggestions, don't hesitate to let us know.
Also be sure to check out AnandTech's Hot Deals Forum for even more great memory, motherboard, CPU, video card and other technology buys.

Welcome to the Second Edition of AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard Price Guide for the June.
Unlike weeks past where memory prices were known to have taken some big nosedives in price, this week the price drops are fewer for the most part but there are some substantial drops. We were amazed to see a $171 price drop with 512MB of PC2100 ECC memory which is the largest memory price drop we've recorded to date. Percentagewise, that's roughly equates to a 25% drop in price; not too shabby at all. PC2100 and PC1600 modules are quiet this week but RDRAM on the other hand has dropped a good bit in price. A good number of PC133 and PC100 modules have either dropped or remained the same in price this week. Joining the DDR memory list are some PC2100 ECC modules.
Slot-1/Socket-370/Socket-423 motherboards haven't made much noise at all since
our last guide. There are several drops and actually several increases in prices,
but nothing significant overall. We've added the Gigabyte GA-6VXD7 Dual VIA
Apollo Pro 133A and Iwill's DVD266-R motherboard to the list.
This week more Socket-A DDR mobos are on the fall making these boards more affordable. The rest of the Socket-A pack haven't changed too much with a few spots of price drops. New to the Socket-A list is ABIT's AMD 760 contender, the KG7-RAID and the Gigabyte 7VTX KT266 motherboard.
