If anyone could offer some advice as well that would be great - I am looking to do my first self-build in the next few months - with the current situation of RAM prices and inflation - am I likely to get a better 16Gb 2400mhz deal than this? (I have seen some on HUKD, but most of them have not been honoured by the seller - including the bt shop £60 Crucial I ordered the other day) -- Any advice would be great, Thanks M

The uncertainty of Brexit etc makes it very tricky to predict, but with consumer products being given a bump in RRP, the latest being Sonos the other day, I think you would do well to pick up your parts as soon as you can.

A 20% bump in price to a build of the same spec would be a deal breaker for me!

This is a great deal and voted hot

£80 seems an OK price for DDR4-2400. Not spectacular, but fine.

May I ask what sort of price you have in mind for your build? If you're going to be spending ~£600+, it definitely makes sense to spend an extra £20 on faster RAM.

need some advice and deals on RAM as well. Planning a workstation build after Ryzen is released. Need 16GB of DDR4 RAM

I'm hoping for ~£550 (i5, micro atx build, hoping to add GPU at a later date) I appreciate I don't need 16Gb of RAM for the build, but with 8Gb being ~£60, for the difference I'd rather future-proof

32GB 3000Mhz for £170ish too if you don't mind white... Bit of a kick in the nuts after the BT one being cancelled mind you.
Just need to find a couple of NVMe drives at a decent price now and wait for Ryzen to come out.
#8
hot! ordered, not sure when this will get delivered... if I find better deal I can cancel/return this :)
got the rx480 today too, now just waiting some good deals on cpu+mobo, hope that in ryzen will bring prices down or be better value than £229 7600K

I think it would still make sense to spend ~£100 on DDR4-3000 or better in that case. If you're in it for the long haul, you don't want to be hobbled by your memory frequency in two or three years, and then have to replace it. Take the extra speed today, and save money in the long run. It's already an absolute no-brainer to spend the extra £30 on DDR4-3000 or better for a £600 build (edit: GAMING build! D'oh, silly me!), because you'll get at least a 5%+ boost in most modern games from it, and that's without even factoring in the future-proofing. (£30 is 5% of £600, y'see.)

(Also, be careful. Some sellers list 32Gb of memory, meaning 4GB! Make sure you're buying gigabytes with a capital G and B! ;))

Just to preempt the usual crowd who for some reason don't trust all the articles claiming that memory speed makes a difference... here's a quote from a HUKD non-techie: "Memory speed will benefit any CPU bound games (FO4, 1-2 others) but we're talking apparently 1%-3% in terms of FPS"

Let's see a graph of that 3% difference in Fallout 4:

http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1089/bench/RAM.png

3%, huh? Looks like over 30% in some situations. :D Actually, that's not a perfect test for this situation, as it's DDR3 (which has a lower latency (e.g. DDR4-2666 isn't twice as fast as DDR3-1333)), so let's check another source:

http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1171/bench/Fallout.png

More than a 5% boost from 2400 to just 3000, and more than 10% from 2400 to 3600.

But what could those other 1-2 games be? Could they be among the six games here that show more than a 3% boost from memory speed? (Thank you shkapars for providing a convenient link!)

http://i68.tinypic.com/rm3af8.jpg

So, be careful when taking advice about memory speed. It's true that the difference used to be negligible, but that hasn't been true for a couple of years now, and some people are a little slow to catch up (and bizarrely ignoring all the numbers). But those results are real enough - I've personally checked Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider and The Witcher 3, and it's not just a better number on a graph, but a noticeable difference in-game.

The trick now will be finding cheap 16GB DDR4-3200 (or 3000 or 3400 or thereabouts :D). There was 16GB of DDR4-3200 for 105€ delivered from Amazon.de about a week ago, but that deal ended before I could get home and post it here. I've not been looking since, so there must have been similar prices since then - keep an eye out, and I'm sure it can be done.

32GB 3000Mhz for £170ish too if you don't mind white...
Could get the 4x16GB kit for £326, going halves with a chum, bringing it down to £163 each. :D

@BetaRomeo -- Thank you for the advice, one quick question though - I was planning on a B250 chipset build, and they are limited to 2400mhz RAM - so surely the 3000mhz would make no difference? (Sorry if I am wrong!)

I appreciate the advice, and I agree that the 3000mhz would improve gameplay and FPS -- but I am building mainly as an office/workstation point of view, with the ability to play some games on if I wish (I don't think I'll be pushing for an "everything at max settings" kind of rig)

The build has mainly stemmed from seeing what I can buy from a shop for £600-700, and then seeing what kind of power I can get from the same money if I self-build -- which facilitates a better processor, more + faster ram, an M.2 + SSD, and an easier ability to ugrade, etc

Oh, I had been writing purely from a gaming perspective - it's absolutely my fault that I forgot to ask, I'm sorry!

Yes, you won't be able to run high-speed memory on a B250 motherboard. If you're sticking to that £550 price, then you won't be able to get a more expensive motherboard like a Z170 and faster memory. So you've already got exactly the right idea - save money on the motherboard and memory to keep the cost under £600. In fact, I'd suggest going a step further and just picking up 8GB for now, as it doesn't really make much difference (unless you're doing something specifically RAM-heavy..?).

But you're right - 2400 is fine for office use with the occasional game. :)

No worries on the mis-understanding! Thank you for the advice, I really do appreciate it!

Out of interest, have you had an email off Amazon to confirm the order? The 1-3 month delivery is the only thing putting me off, but at least it is via Amazon directly

it is just a place holder as they dont have stock and they dont know when they will get it. email says 1-3mon
