Hope it stays down for when I do a Zen 3 build later in the year



Not to burst your bubble but other than special offers like this the price trends are starting to creep back up again generally. They hit a low towards the end of last year and have been sneaking up ever since. With possible issues related to coronavirus and high demand from Sony and Microsoft for their new consoles on top of general high demand from mobile phone manufacturers, I could see them keep rising.

If you're willing to risk it you could buy a kit now and store it away. Only way you lose is if you're unlucky to have faulty sticks that needed returning.

This is a great deal - so glad NAND prices are coming down again.
Thank you - just bought some. Now my rig will be 32GB

Yeah that's what I was thinking - but to be fair I'm not bottlenecked at the moment (i5-8400 and a 1070 Ti) so I may just wait until early next year to move to a RTX 3000 series and a Zen Gen 3.

Yeah i'm on a i5-6600k and it's starting to show it's age on modern titles, not dissimilar to the 7600k on BFV actually:

The 1% lows don't actually show the whole picture, it presents itself more like a noticible freeze.

That's a good shout, I might pick up a 16GB x2 kit the next time I see one for about £100 and store it till later this year. I am often building systems so will be able to test it works okay at least and Amazon are pretty good with returns.

Yeah If you've got a system you can test them in it's a no brainer IMO.

Not in stock until March 14th but Amazon has a single 16GB 3200mhz Crucial stick for £51.49, so just a touch over £100 for two. Not sure why the actual 32GB kit is £170 but obviously exactly the same thing.

No problem! I've got a similar kit sitting on my desk ready for my next build although it's only payday at the the end of the month I'm waiting for. Thought I'd get in on the cheap Crucial RAM before it disappeared, saved me £20 over the current going rate.
Been a very long time since i built a pc, anyone got a good link on what i need to get these days as far as components? Thanks
Worth the upgrade for me?

What would be the main purpose of the build?

Budget?

Almost everyone including myself is on the AMD bandwagon as the price to performance is simply staggering!

You could buy the latest and greatest, but to be fair, a 6 core Ryzen 3600 (£150) in a good B450 motherboard (£90) will be fine for 90% of any average consumer workload.

You could likely save more by going the Ryzen 1600 AF (£85) route in a mid range B450 motherboard (£60).

Both the above coupled with this memory would be a great base system to start with, then if needed you just need to look at a case, power supply, graphics card and storage.

Hope that helps..

In my opinion, 8gb nowadays is just scraping by.

16gb is the minimum you should have in a gaming PC.
Now Out of stock - Back in stock on February 29, 2020.
You can still back order it if you wish.

Agreed, 16gb is currently ideal - If you're currently running a single 8gb module you'll likely benefit from the move to Dual Channel.

In a typical gaming scenario I'm observing 8-13gb RAM usage, it'll be interesting to see whether next-gen consoles encourages or requires developers to take advantage of higher capacities (16-32gb). I've gambled on the latter but suspect it'll be exceptional cases for several years, plus DDR5 replacements are long overdue.
32GB is... currently not needed in all but 1 or 2 edge cases for gaming (serious work is another thing entirely, as are VM's/IT Cert training rigs).

This next gen of Ryzen (Ryzen 4/Zen 3) will be the last using DDR4. AM5 sockets will likely be the thing late next year along with DDR5 for both AMD and Intel so... I'd suggest 16GB as a max currently is perfectly fine unless you plan on sitting on motherboard/CPU combo for a good while before the next upgrade.

I'd be tempted to see what the biggest Ryzen 4/Zen 3 chip is in the autumn and stick with that for a while till DDR5+PCIe5 are out and settle into a regular, well understood setup... in that case... MAYBE 32GB for gaming, for safe margins, while it's cheap

My RAM has actually dispatched already, thanks for the heads up.
