Try www.pricewatch.com and www.newegg.com. Avoid the big stores like BestBuy/CompUSA or something... their prices are usually outrageous.

best budget ram, easily the Corsair VS 3200 DDR400 RAM, it almost matches up to most high spec ram like the XMS, within 3% performance difference between this ram and top spec ram, its also darn cheap and very common, shudnt be hard to find.

Actually Best Buy usually has some good buys on ram. And actually I got two 512mb sticks on ebay for 50 bucks so ebay has good prices just they might be used, and nothing wrong w/ used ram in my opinion.

Well, you USUALLY can find better prices on the internet... only bad thing about it is that you need to order it.

If you have a FRY's near you, check out their weekly sales. Sometimes they have some good stuff for sale.

I agree with you on the pricewatch but have you noticed that neweggs prices are getting pretty high nowadays? Ever since they started doing commercials as a matter o' fact.
