Shame about ram prices recently

I bought 2x8GB Kingston hyperx fury ddr4-2400 for 60 on Amazon last year at this time

I'll wait until ram prices and ssd/nand prices return to normal before I upgrade again

I would recommend people buy 2400 as a minimum.. slow ram affect games too.

Ram is the fastest thing in your system
If there's a bottleneck it's more likely your ssd, or next most likely is the gpu
... Unless you have too little ram

No, not true anymore. In fact, 8GB of DDR4-3200 is going to be much better for games than 16GB of DDR4-2133.

While a case can be made for settling for 2400 for a very, very cheap gaming PC, 2133 is going to stifle several games quite noticeably. Here's a collation of sources for the effects of faster memory, and here's a comparison of 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (That being said, I'll still be putting 16GB into my next build!)

​That's not how it works.

Thanks for clearing that up your reasoning is so concise, ever thought of becoming a politician?

For a g4560 and 1050ti build. Is it worth getting 16gb. And 2133mhz or higher?

Great deal for someone building a ddr4 based media pc or similar.

​Can't quote individual segments of text on mobile (well you can if you edit the comment but...) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

However I can tell you that faster RAM does benefit the user in a variety of applications. This effect is optimal for value at 2400MHz. techspot.com/art…tml

Faster speeds will of course benefit users more. "RAM is the fastest thing in your computer" doesn't mean jack squat, it may be relatively the fastest thing compared to other components, but when comparing components, you compare components to the same components, not other stuff like GPUs and CPUs.

A set of 2400MHz won't cost too much more given how it is a common spec now, with Skylake systems supporting it as a JEDEC standard. 3200MHz is a nice to have if you can afford it and know how to set XMP up in the BIOS.

Storage devices do not bottleneck games which are coded properly, texture assets and various other assets should be cached in RAM in preparation to be swapped into VRAM, not loaded directly from the storage device.

CPUs and GPUs will bottleneck games, this effect varies depending on the game. You can always wait to upgrade or swap a GPU. CPUs and RAM should be a long term maintenance object, hence get a proper CPU and a proper set of RAM and you won't have to worry about falling behind. With ZEN coming out and DDR4 prices on the rise, getting a proper RAM kit is integral to saving money for those looking to upgrade this year.

Also I'd recommend 16GB as a minimum in 2017 and beyond if you plan on multitasking with your PC when gaming.

RAM prices are crazy lately. I bought 2x4GB of the 2400MHz version of this last March for £32 and now they're looking more than twice that.

It's a double whammy for us really, as it's not just NAND price increasing, but the exchange rate has got worse too.

It's the effect of demand also, lots of new builds coming in the next few weeks with Ryzen.
