I'm not selling anything, but I came across this today...

It's 24GB of name brand DDR3 1600Mhz for less than US$200. So anyone still using Fusion with 8GB of RAM or less, come on, no excuses... What wonderful times we live in.

Wow. I'm thinking 12Gb is no longer enough.

We recently found some 8GB ECC DDR3 RDIMMs for Xeons for less than $100. So you could fill up a Dell T7500 or HP Z800 with 96GB of RAM for less than $1200.

The new Sandy Bridge E chips support quad channel memory. So you can get a new CPU, 8-slot motboard, and 64GB of RAM for around $1500. Not bad.

So now we have 16GB DR ECC DD3 1333 DIMMS for $299 each. Meaning you could upgrade your Xeon WS (say a T7500) to 192GB for $3600. Not bad.

I just picked up 32GB of DDR3 1333 for my laptop for $475 at Newegg. I can't hibernate anymore, but I sure can cache a lot of footage.

EDIT: We purchased some Kingston sticks like those 16GB ones above from a major channel reseller for $170 each. So for a smidge over $2000, you can get 192GB in a standard dual Xeon box.
