That is a good price but 8gb RAM is a pain. Adding another 8gb isn’t guaranteed to work without issues and some newer games do stutter on 8gb.

The 8gb stick is clocked at 3000MHz. I don't think adding another in should be too problematic?

Hot from me

Just noticed it’s also a single 8gb stick so running single channel and not dual. That is really going to hurt performance and increase the chance of stuttering. RAM is only guaranteed in the form it is sold, adding RAM not bought as a matched kit can have issue. Although often ok to mix I have had issues mixing RAM of exact same make and model and anyone who looks at pc building forums will see it’s always recommend to use matched kits.
this is a good price for a pc of this spec.

would cost you the about the same (most likely more) to build a pc of this spec.

at 1080p gaming, would you need anything else?

also get 3 year warranty

You would need a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers at least. Oh and an OS

It is good for the price of the hardware but it is such a dumb RAM configuration. Single channel RAM on a modern gaming pc is going to stutter on newer AAA games. You really need to bin the RAM and get at least a 2x4gb kit but ideally 2x8gb.

When Noah was building the Ark yes pairing was an issue. I’ve been mixing kits and had zero issues. I have at least stuck to the same brand and general spec.

Actually it seems more likely as RAM speeds have increased over the years, I never heard of it with DDR or DDR2, only since DDR3 & DDR4. I’ve had it first hand trying to mix 2 2x4gb Corsair Vengance kits and you have only got to search forums like Tomshardware to see how frequently people do run into problems. I’m not saying you will have issues, as I said earlier I have done it without issues but there is a genuine chance you may run into problems.

Issues mixing and matching are pretty damn rare these days. I mix and match for a long time now in all various systems and have never seen a compatibility ot stability issue in about 7 or 8 years. Even then it was really down to faulty RAM. For the dozens of older laptops that I have bunged more RAM in I just find the right speed and latency. They invariably work fine for years after.

If it's really a big deal for anyone it really isn't difficult to find a matching module with these. You just take the part number and google it.

If you go to the ebay listing, click on customize, you can select 2 * 8GB, so it comes pre-configured with that, for an extra £35, which seems decent value if you were concerned about mixing and matching speeds/brands/etc.

The point is finding a module with the same part number does not guarantee success, it definitely increases the chances of success. I have no idea what the % chance of issue is but it definitely exists. As I said I’ve have the problem once using 2 kits which were the same and it’s a topic that continually pops up on the hardware forums.

I get you have posted about half a dozen times stressing how important it is to have matching but it just isn't that big a deal. A couple of issues on forums probably about faulty modules from millions of builds isn't a serious problem.

As someone said above, order it with the extra module if you want to. Otherwise don't be stressing that you have to make some sort of holy pilgrimage to the Hynix factory in South Korea to find the sacred rare matching serial numbers, contemplating if RAM modules have a life partner and soul mate.

You don't need to do that.

Also don’t ignore the problem. These systems are often bought by people who don’t want to tinker with them and are scared to. People then spouting oh just throw in another stick of RAM when the system doesn’t meet the buyers needs/expectations are underestimating how daunting this might be especially if someone is unfortunate enough to encounter a problem that they were not warned about.

At least give people the facts and let them make a decision.

Daunting? You undo a couple of screws on the case then click a module into a slot the only way round it fits in.

It's less complicated than making a cup of tea. It's harder to mess about with a hard drive in a games console than click in another RAM module on a desktop computer FFS.

This is ridiculous scare mongering. If you're smart enough to operate a gaming PC you have plenty of brain capacity spare to upgrade some RAM.

There is laying out the facts and there is scare mongering. Why not mention DOA sticks, the silicone lottery on tighter timings or static problems when fitting the addition stick.

I have a system sitting here with 2x16GB sticks and 2x8GB Corsair XMP 3000Mhz. It runs perfectly well. Yes both pairs were bought as kits but I’m using mixed pairs.
Matching stick was an issue when dual channel launched.
My previous build had 2 sets of 2x2GB XMP3 memory. Over the years the kits got mixed up that there is no way they shared a channel with their sibling.
My brothers PC ran fine for years with an 8GB DDR3 stick and 4GB stick.
So this is exactly the same spec except it has 16GB of memory and according to the comments it's £500 not £512 so £23 more than this deal is that worth it.Thanks. hotukdeals.com/dea…176
