My guess is we will see $50 by the end of the year.

putting together my first gaming PC
my motherboard shows on the box " 2400 MHz, 1866 MHz, 2133 MHz, 2667 MHz, 3466 MHz (O.C.)" Do I need ram that shows exactly those numbers of MHz? Or will 3000 work?

3000 should work in it. What motherboard are you looking at?

DaRam:

Laptops use a smaller memory format called SO-DIMM (hence the "SODIMM" in the Crucial suggestion). There's a frontpage deal for 32GB (2x16) SODIMM memory that should also be compatible, if you have 2 slots to use in the laptop.

Letting everyone know:
1. Anything over 2400 is over clocking as it's out of spec of normal ddr4 standards.
2. Anything faster is than spec is minimal gains and not worth the money as according to Linus Tech Tips via YouTube where he tests them.

I was done with his stupid basic videos after I watched the how to calibrate your monitor video... If you want to believe that nonsense go ahead but let's not spread around.

It is amazing how much bad information you gave in so few words. You need to rewatch the video you're referring to. You got the facts and the conclusion incorrect. He said that there is no point in going higher, even if you could (3200): https://youtu.be/D_Yt4vSZKVk?t=268

His conclusion at 05:39 is the largest price:performance increase is achieved at 2666. Anything past 3200 is overkill, even by his conclusion.

A better thing for you to recommend, is what Linus recommends. If all of your hardware is middle tier, then buy middle tier ram. If you have the best of everything, then get the best ram. Also, his analysis was conducted when 16gb was $150




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deus EX, from your video, has a (Ryzen) 13.6% improvement with faster ram. Rise of the Tomb Raider (Intel) has a 14.3% improvement.

Quote from Linus..."Some games are more memory sensitive than others than we'd originally expected."

16% improvement by going to faster RAM with Ryzen in Witcher 3: https://www.eteknix.com/memory-sp...rformance/

21% improvement by going to faster RAM with i7-7700k on ARMA III: https://techreport.com/review/311...eviewed/11

If you are insecure and need all the RGB maybe. However, clock speeds and latency are what I look for.

"The RGB" is hypnotizing. But for real I was completely against "the RGB" until I decided I'm gonna make every match in my case. Now I got to have "the RGB".
