Well there must be a huge demand for it. When I went to sleep last night NewEgg had 19 kits. Now when I wake up this morning only kits left at NewEgg.

Yeah, US has much bigger population, over 300 million vs only 7 million in HK. And they wouldn't order anything for you without you putting down 5% deposit first lol.

Thats completely different to what I heard. I heard that the real reason it is so rare is because these ram kits require extra work and have a very high failure rate (I don't mean failure as in when you buy it, I mean as in when they try to make them). This is why the price is high,because they end up testing loads of ram kits before they get to a good one. This takes time and patience. It also creates the demand to support the insane price.

There is nothing like the fear of something running out to make us buy stuff. Is this intentional, I don't think so, but they are aware of it and they will capatilize on it. Contrary to popular belief they won't be making much money on these kits, they just can't sell enough to make enough so these kits will not be on their priotory list and will spend more time out of stock than in stock. They are just there to raise the profile of the company to increase sales in the other more profitable areas.

Although I am sure that they are vary of building to many as the last thing they want is to be stuck with those rams all unsold. They will probably build them to order as they want these kinds of rams to go through as quick as possible. Retailers are no different. Imagine what would happen if they bought hundreds, and then in two months something even better and cheaper comes out and they still have loads of unsold dommies. Noone will take a risk like that on ram sticks. It 's a different story for things like cpu's and gpu's.

The Ballistix are some of the best in the business and overclock really well, also. I've seen DDR2 667 Crucial overclocked stable to 1000mhz 4-4-4-5 1T. My best friend has a set.

This is why I bought a 2Gig kit last month,of that exact ram for 259 USD with delivery for 4.99$.One day only,Newegg sale.

Yup, I got the same Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2-1000 kit for that price range, as well. But, $279 and a $35 rebate with free shipping. I just couldn't say no to that deal.
