Is it the same thing to buy two single dimms as buying a two dimm kit?

In terms of absolute delay, a CAS level of 19 (the first number in the timings) would be

19/2666MHz = 7.1 nanoseconds

You want this number to be as low as possible, as it indicates how long the CPU must wait to fetch memory stored in RAM.

Contrast this 7.1 ns with some other popular deals posted (albeit at a much higher price) with CAS 16 at 3000MHz:

16/3000MHz = 5.3 ns

That said, this deal is much cheaper. But if you have a Ryzen CPU, this RAM will most likely limit your performance for certain (memory intensive) jobs.

Thanks for taking the time to explain! Do you think RAM prices are going to drop more than they currently have?

The prices were rumored to drop at 30% because of this recent surplus. Now we see ram deals all over the place. Almost none of these deals are on higher end market tho. The retailers just want to test how well they sell when there is marjinal price drop first and depending on the improvement they are about to decide dropping the prices further. I am waiting for a 3000mhz cl15 deal to add more ram, but they are still more than 100 dollars, but there may be deals for them in the near future as well.

Oooof very bad, just scored 32GB of CAS 14 Latency 3200 DDR4 RAM for $120
They probably listed the price as a Single 8GB Stick but they honored the order awaiting a cancellation. But you can't buy any faster than C14 3200Mhz DDR4 RAM.

They have a surplus and would rather create a shortage so they are slashing prices to reduce inventory. Prices go up when retailers have no stock. And they can squeeze retailers. So expect to see upto a 50% price drop on RAM. 16GB DDR4 should hot $50 to $60 with Premium RAM 3200 CAS14 the best quality dropping later, the rather get rid of the lower quality Ram first.

I have a HP desktop 580-023w with DDR4-2400 (PC4-19200 MB/s) - 8GB.
Is this a good choice for me to upgrade? If so, is it advisable to install this having the existing one in place so that the total RAM will be 24GB?

Isn't that the old Walmart HP that came with a 1060 for $199?

Yes, it's a good upgrade. But the RAM will only run as fast as your slowest stick which is your existing stick. They really lowballed the RAM in those machines didn't they? Also, obviously, you won't have dual channel. But mutli-channel RAM today is more hype than reality. Yes there is a speed up but it's in the low single digit percentages for most things.

I think the bulk of the drop has already happened due to that surplus. Use Micron as a leading indicator. It plummeted a few months ago because of the surplus. It has since bottomed and recovered. There would be no reason for that unless the bulk of the surplus has been dealt with. Micron and RAM prices is like FCX and copper prices. FCX is like a copper ETF. Micron is like a RAM ETF.

Thank you. It was not $199 though, I have paid around $500 at walmart. Will I get better speed if I replace 8gb with this 16gb?
