PC Memory Prices Continue to Rise

Maximum PC: Anyone remember when a 2GB overclocking kit would run a couple hundred dollars? Those days are long gone, replaced by the current landscape in which you can scoop up a 32GB DDR3 memory kit for around $150 or $160. DRAM prices are dirt cheap, as they have been for some time now, and it's taken a toll on DRAM makers. According to DRAMeXchange, top tier memory makers continue to reduce shipments of commodity DRAM to drive up prices, and it's working. (DRAM, DRAMeXchange, PC hardware, RAM)

Mobile device makers are eating away profit from the PC and the best response PC makers can give is to bump up prices on the hardware? Just what are they thinking here?
