Memory is very cheap if you do not buy it from a pc manufacturer. 8GB of quality DDR2 can be had for $170US at newegg. This is for sets of 2GB matched pair DDR2 PC6400 modules (four total 2GB dimms). If you buy your machine from Dell or HP they will charge you 3 to 6 times the market rate for lower quality dimms.
