Cost of RAM

Seems odd that the cost of DDR 2 RAM is more expensive than DDR 3 RAM.
I Would have thought the cost of an older electronic product would be cheaper rather than more expensive ?

Re: Cost of RAM

It's probably due to them not manufacturing as many of the older products, therefore production cost is now higher as the batches are smaller.

Re: Cost of RAM

As I understand it a number of older Motherboards will not support DDR 3 so you either pay more for DDR 2 or pay even more for a New board that supports DDR 3.
