I'd go for this …I'd go for this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/122697262341?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649


That's DDR3
2400MHz 😞

2400MHz 😞



Justified sad face for some.
However if anyone is running out of RAM.
Adding more of just about any speed will make a difference.
Example would be anyone with 8GB or less and edit lots of Photos or Video.
What I can't work out is, is the extra £50 worth it for 2 x 8GB CL15 3000Mhz against the above 2 x 8GB CL14 2400Mhz?

In terms of gaming performance, what gains or benefits are there??

I'm also interested if anyone has an opinion. I'd get this now but I'm building a ryzen 1600 gaming pc and I'm hearing memory speed has more of an impact on them compared to Intel cpus.
Well its gone up to £115 so I guess that's me out 😣
damn been looking for this ram for ages at a more reasonable price to get me to 32GB, maybe next year

clocks aren't the whole story
look at latency (CAS timings)
often the high clocks come with high latency - i.e. diminishing returns. You're better off reinvesting the savings into another part for your PC - depending on your requirements
50 extra in a GPU may get you from 1070 to 1080 (with current pricing having gone crazy on 1070) or RX580 to RX Vega 56 (again, crazy pricing on RX580)
50 extra in CPU won't go far, unless comparing between i3 and i5
50 extra in SSD can be the difference between SATA and PCie
