Go to PCpartpicker, start with a Ryzen 7 2700x, work from there (mobo, 16gb ram, sata SSD, case, ~650w psu) saving GPU for last. If you end up with not enough for a GPU you want you can look into picking up something used, tweak what you've picked to allocate more money for it, or decide against building a PC for $1000 right now. To keep price down you'll probably just use stock case fans for now, and stock cpu cooler. I would imagine you'll be playing 1080p Ultra, and definitely don't worry about ray tracing, that ain't happening. But I'm just some dude.
Damn I went with 8GB ram a year ago thinking GPU would pick up the slack but that is not the case. A lot of chrome tabs and remote desktop along with a game like even wow can chunk the memory.

Can someone tell me what the best thing my pc can handle is memorywise if I have the following?

CPU: Intel(R) Core™ Processor i7-6700K 4.00GHZ 8MB Intel Smart Cache

MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR4/2800MHz Dual Channel Memory (ADATA XPG Z1)

MOTHERBOARD: GIGABYTE GA-Z170X GAMING 3 ATX w/ USB 3.1, 3 PCIe x16, 3

Like do I need to buy in pairs or can I have one 16 and keep one my 8? Can it take advantage of c14 or would this deal be a good one?

Exactly. Monopoly is the true enemy of consumers.

The problem isn't latency when you have a single stick. It won't work in dual channel and so bandwidth will be significantly cut reducing performance to a level where none of the speed or latency improvements matter. Your current setup running in dual channel will be much faster than the single stick. Or you can upgrade in pairs to this if you want to increase memory. But no one needs that much memory unless you are running a lot of virtual machines.

Also since you are running an Intel, you are not going to see any difference from what you have by going up in speed from 2800. So replacing with a dual pair at higher speed is just throwing money down the drain. Just get another pair of matched 2x4 at 2666 to 2800 to fill out your board to 16Gb and save money.

With 4 sticks in 2 matched pairs, each pair will work as dual channel thereby giving you more memory at the max speed that your Intel chip can utilize memory.

Thank you so much this is what I needed to know. So the whole "c" # doesn't matter for me.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but how much $ do you need to build a decent computer that can play most of the newer games? I haven't built a computer since 5 years ago and I am a little out of loop with current systems. Thanks!
i3 8100 build msi mortar z370, 16gb lpx ddr4 3000 c15 ram, 512gb Samsung Evo nvme and Asrock RX 570 8gb came out to apprx $500 for my build. and in my view a pretty decent value. Of course most parts secured on Slickdeals here.

I just bought the refurb HP 590-0054w for $296 from another slickdeals thread. It came with i5-8400, 1x8GB DDR4 2666 unknown ram model.

Can I just buy any 8GB DDR4 2666 and have it run in dual channel mode or do I need to buy a pair like this to have it run in dual channel?

I was looking at the GSkill value ram 8GB DDR4 2666 for 39.99. Not sure if that will work.

Im not gaming, just using for programming, browsing , productivity.

I recently built a computer for around 650 and currently playing the division 2 at 1080p ultra setting with fps between 50 to 90. Since the graphics card and ram prices are falling you could build one for a cheaper price.

No, do not buy this. It will not work. This is ddr4, and you need ddr3.

Never fear though, you can still buy ddr3. However, with a system that old, verify that your operating system is a 64 but version and not a 32 bit version. (32 but version operating systems max out at 4gb of ram).

The good thing about ddr3 is that it is still less expensive that ddr4.

Below is an quick example, one could find a better deal if they searched in sure.

That's absurd. You don't need a 2700X for a first build. A 2600 would suffice and probably cut $100 easy.

Ryzen 5 2600 would be fine for modern gaming. Can save money going that route. I'm running all new games 1080p Ultra with that CPU combined with a RTX 2060. You also don't need a 650 PSU....550 would do fine.
