I've puttered on with 4GB of memory a good many years now, but thinking of getting some more.
Is it likely that the pricing will drop down again sometime or should one just bite the bullet and get some sticks before it increases even more?

>TL;DR
Is it a good/bad idea to spend money on RAM now if one can wait?

your ram will only get cheaper because your motherboard needs obsolete DDR

Especially with DDR3 since the new platforms support it and plenty of people were buying out the old stock when it was cheaper than DDR4. So that window of opportunity was very short.

But to OP, there's no way to know but it doesn't look like it. Just bite the bullet if you need to. I thought it would drop since I built my PC but it's only gone up.

Not really. I just checked ram prices and the 16GB kit i've got is currently $40 cheaper than it was back when I built my Z97 system.

If you don't mind testing it, you should only be buying used DDR3. Modules last pretty much forever and the price will steadily drop until most of it is in landfills.
