Help me finish this Ryzen PC build

477 475 June 30, 2018 at 05:20 PM
Hi,

This will be my first build. My goal is to have a project to do with my 10 year old and end up with something that he can use to play fortnite. I got in on the 2600X deal and have bought some other parts. Here's a partpicker link. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/CvkkD2

I'm wondering specifically about RAM. Newegg has a corsair vengeance 2x8GB DDR4 3000 for $175. I've seen some ram about $15 cheaper, but with what I have so far it'd be cool to have everything be black and white. Also wondering if 16 gigs is overkill or 2x4GB (or 1x8GB) would be enough. Also, I've read about faster ram being good for Ryzen, but can't remember if that was true just for the integrated graphics chips. If I could get by with 2400, I could save a couple bucks there.

Any advice would be appreciated.

TIA,
Ditch

If 2400 8GB is sufficient, this might do? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AG9F0G8

Ryzen works better with faster RAM. Make sure the RAM you choose is on the motherboard compatability list. I had a rough time with my Ryzen 1600 build because I assumed Corsair Vengeance 3000 would be compatible.

My (expensive) RAM is not on ANY amd motherboards' lists and people on here keep telling me I'll have no problem. So I don't know what to do at this point. (I've bought the TAM, and not the cpu or mobo... so may have to go with intel just to be safe).
