Cheap RAM of old MBP?

I was shocked to see 4gb of RAM for my 2007 2.2 MBP is $60 at Crucial!

I mainly wanted the upgrade to run ML since I am still on SL and the splashtop2 app requires OSX.7 or higher.

Is there anywhere to score some second hand or cheap RAM for my machine?

thanks...it still seems expensive to me given I can get 16gb for around $100 for a macmini

I was kind of hoping there was a reputable used RAM seller out there where I could get it for $10-$20
