Building a PC right now is hard, between pretty insane GPU prices and equally-mad RAM pricing.
It makes finding a good deal more important than ever, so we’re here to help you make the best decision you can.
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB
This 16GB kit from Corsair is a really good buy right now for a few reasons. The first is that it’s a 16GB kit made up of a pair of 8GB sticks. The next is that its 3000MHz RAM, and finally, it costs less than $200.
Corsair Vengeance RAM has a good reputation for performance and reliability, and the fact that you’re getting a 3000MHz kit for $190 makes it a great buy. It even looks pretty good, but you’ll have to stick to black to get the lowest price.
Ballistix Sport LT 8GB Single DDR4
You don’t always need multiple sticks of RAM and this single 8GB option from Ballistix (a Micron brand) at $82 is a great price right now. The 2666MHz version is actually cheaper than the base 2400MHz one, which makes it an even better deal.
Only the red color is available at this price, but it’ll look great in your rig. If you need more, getting two of these is cheaper than a lot of 16GB kits.
Patriot Viper 4 Series Extreme Performance
If you’re looking for performance memory, Patriot’s Viper 3200MHz is already screaming fast. Not only that but it fully supports Intel XMP for easy overclocking, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Currently 16GB is yours for $195 which is a pretty solid price. It should also be a good pairing with AMD Ryzen and Threadripper processors, which thrive with fast memory.
G.SKILL TridentZ 64GB kit
If you need a lot of RAM, like, 64GB worth made up of 8GB sticks, then this package is for you. For $799 right now at Newegg you can get a set of the excellent G.SKILLZ DDR4 RAM clocked at 3200MHz.
An eight pack of 8GB sticks isn’t necessarily for everyone, but given the current prices, $799 for all this RAM isn’t too bad. It’s also great to split, you can kit out four PCs, for example, with 16GB each for the equivalent of under $200 each, which isn’t bad at all.
