I was looking for 256MB IBM/ ATI Radeon HD2400XT TV-out PCI-E Dual Head DMS-59 43R1962 43C0260
and searched "43R1962" on Google and one of the sponsored ads at the top come up with the prices in the ads I don't know how they do that? as all the items from that advertiser have the prices in there ads and they can't put the prices for all the items manually ?

I think what netmeg is saying is "manual". AdWords editor isn't a feature, it is a desktop application that allows for easy bulk editing. They could easily create the ads to put the price (held in another cell in Excel) into the ad copy, then paste into AdWords editor and upload.
Affiliates often do this with merchants' product feeds. They have a file that contains the product name, description, price and URL. These "pieces" can easily be combined into unlimited number of ads, without a great deal of time.
Adwords API could do this automatically. Some advertisers hook it up to their product database, so when there is a price change or inventory shortage, changes are made to the ads in near real time...
