As many of you already know, early 2018 was a bad time to build a new PC. The price of new DDR4 was offensively high about a year ago, and the recent cryptocurrency craze didn't help video card prices either. Media outlets and research firms like DramXchange and Digitimes have been prophesizing lower prices for some time, but their numbers are largely focused on bulk shipments to OEMs, which doesn't necessarily translate to lower prices for enthusiasts. However, PCPartPicker indexes PC part list prices from a large variety of U.S. retailers, and they maintain historical price charts for various components. According to their latest charts, 4x4GB DDR4-3000 kit prices are finally coming down to mid-2017 levels, and other kits are following similar trends. Meanwhile, SSD prices are dropping like a rock, and video cards like the GTX 1070 and Vega 56 are slowly coming back down to their mid-2017 prices, while the RX 580 has already dropped to well below its launch price.
