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 First Edition of AnandTech's Memory and Motherboard Price Guide for August.
Like previous week, the price of memory across the board continues to drop; albeit not as sharply as usual. The PC2100 512MB ECC DDR DIMM say a hefty $72 price drop this week, bringing it to a lower price of only $432. PC800 RDRAM also took a nosedive in price this week as 256MB modules can now be found for as little as $131 and 128MB RIMMs can be found for $51. PC100, 133, and 150 DIMMs also continued to drop in price this week.
Slot-1/Socket-370/Socket-423 motherboards continue to remain relatively unchanged in price again this week. Several i815EP motherboards were actually up in price. However, the remaining motherboards showed a slight downward trend.
On the AMD side of things we see the prices of KT133/E and KT133A boards to drop slightly in price. The Socket-A DDR mobos continue to fall moderately this week; especially those VIA KT266 boards.
