If you’re thinking about upgrading your PC in the next few months, one component you should find cheaper to buy will be memory.

According to a report in digitimes.com, a fall in PC sales means there’s a glut of PC memory forming in warehouses in Asia and that can only mean one thing – lower prices.

Oh-Hyun Kwon is the boss of Samsung’s chip business and he is reported as expecting the third-quarter of 2010 to see an oversupply of DRAM chips in the market. The quarter will also see DRAM output grow as manufacturers begin to bring to production technology online.

But if the PC sales decline continues in the lead-up to Christmas, the glut could continue into 2011.

Not happy times if you’re in the DRAM game but pretty good if you’re in the market for some new RAM.
