Early this year I was considering a new build and was reading that memory prices were on the up for the remainder of 2017. So I ended up back in February 2017 purchasing a kit of Corsair Vengeance White LED 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory for AUD $352.99. The price of this exact same kit now, barely 9 months later here in Australia is AUD $648.98. Not far off double what I payed for it! So in this instance it was definitely a case of winner winner chicken dinner for me.

Normally when I look to building a rig I buy all of my parts at once and have never bought a part here and a part there over a two or three month period as some people do. However in this instance I convinced myself that I may as well buy the system RAM now while I am deciding on a new build. As it turned out it payed off big time because still I am yet to build my rig as I waited based on rumours that Intel were going to bring Coffee Lake forward to a 2017 release. So now I am just waiting on Asus to release their ROG Maximums X Formula and Code (rumoured to release later this November) before deciding on which of the two boards to pair with an i7-8700K. I expect to have built before Christmas.
