However, they do have something that I want and it seems reasonable in today's gpu craziness. Do you have any advice for me or should I instead go to MemEx, BB, Newegg, Amazon, etc. and wait for stock?

Here is the bundle I'm looking at: https://www.canadacomputers.com/product ... _id=199078
Ultimately, you have to go with your gut but it's worth considering how a purchase affects everyone else, even it's only just that - consideration. I think MemEx is worth supporting or perhaps a local small parts store near you and if neither of those are possible, just get it from Amazon. Based on what CC and NewEgg have been doing over the last year or so, I won't ever buy anything from either ever again.

I didn’t know the background on CC, I wasn’t going to price match with MemEx as the difference is insignificant but I’m just learning about the price gouging, so I will.

If you're building a server, DDR3 is infinitely better value. You can get 128GB (or more) very cheaply compared to overpriced DDR4.

That makes sense. I just thought most people would be using DDR4 since it's getting harder to find a motherboard that supports DDR3.

Hard to say if prices will continue falling since ddr5 production is ramping up
Not really. Most DDR4 modules are higher than they were last august. Larger sizes especially are still high, IMO.

I wouldn't buy from Canada Computers though. Would rather pay more and go to Memory Express or even support Amazon over CC. That repuation is earned by them and they're too stupid to realize it will be hard to remove it going forward.

I was going to go to them to get a custom computer built, who's a good alternative?

Outside of BestBuy, Amazon and B&H, I think all retailers took advantage of the pandemic.

Are you looking from them to build you a custom PC or just buying parts and then you assemble yourself?

If it's the former,your only big store options are Canada Computers, Memory Express or Newegg.

I ordered, lets see if they come through! Only showing 2 in stock online and ol'Cancel Computers is mediocre at best. If they cancel, no big deal, it's going into a server box that is sufficient, but this is good value to upgrade speed and GBs of ram

Thanks for the deal find OP

I'm not home right now, so I would have to check after, but I know I have 2 Gskill sticks of either 4gb or 8gb DDR3. The rest I would have to go through my box of pc components to see what's there.
