    DDR3 modules are selling much more than DDR2, always old RAM modules will more expensive than newer, depending of the release.

    Yes that is a good point however it is a supply and demand issue.

    The one good thing about purchasing used memory is that it rarely goes bad however finding it is usually someone going from let's say from 1gb stick to 2gb stick leaving the less desirable 1gb stick to market. Changing from ddr2 to ddr3 is usually non platform compatible.
