Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2133 MHz PC4-17000 UDIMM Memory Kit $149

As we all know, there is no such thing as a hot deal for DDR4 memory when you compare current prices to prices of years past. However, if you absolutely cannot wait for prices to go down and need memory right away, this seems to be a good price for 16GB of basic DDR4 memory from a reputable manufacturer.

Free shipping and no Tax for most.

This ram is slow.

It's alot slower compared to 2666 kits.
Please explain why this matters, as you'll gain all of 1-3FPS by moving up in speed (if that). Outside of gaming, the difference is even less. But hey, continue spreading FUD

Likewise, should bit at ~$100 on the 16gb ddr4 last year... So much for that Ryzen build 😐

Won't matter as much in intel as it does with gaming in Ryzen (and granted that is likely not going to be an issue unless you've gotten a 144Mhz+ 1080p screen).

I hope these prices don't become the new norm. I am still rocking a AMD 1100T with DDR2-800 Ballistix tracers and GTX-480. I am ready and waiting for Ryzen+ in April with the X470 chipsets. Hopefully ram and videocards will go back to normal.

If history is to judge by, price fixing, followed by a class action lawsuit and the prices crashing. Rinse and repeat in a few years.

I think it matters because you might as well try to use the same speed ddr3 ram for much less $. If you are going ddr4, and only getting speeds that are as fast as ddr3, with more latency than jokes on you imo.

In other words why pay extra for a motherboard and ram that support ddr4 if ddr3 at this speed is good enough? If I am spending 150 on this ram I am sure as heck going to spend $20 more for the faster speed for whatever 'insignificant' performance boost i can get on a rig i should use for the next 4+ years. I bet if I add all those 'insignificant' frames and shorter run times up over 4 years its well worth $20 now.

That's what I believe as well. Have you quantified it? Additional marginal demand in a market where supply is fully utilized can dramatically affect prices. Memory the sells for essentially whatever the market will bear.

FUD? Your assuming that everybody is going to be using this for gaming and nothing else... For example compiling code with faster ram is going to be better for example as some applications benefit greatly from increased memory bandwidth.

Also FWIW in some games the difference can be as much as 10 FPS.

If all you care about is games and don't care about performance of other things or don't do anything else this is probably fine.

It only matters when u do gamer math, and mix in deal calculations. Not when you actually use the hardware
