Newegg [newegg.com] has the G.SKILL 2x8GB DDR4 2666 MHz SODIMM Laptop RAM for $49.99 with free shipping. This is the lowest price per 2666MHz 8GB SODIMM that I've seen recently. It's also CL18 which is slightly lower than the usual CL19.
This is well rated in this review [tomshardware.com] at Tom's Hardware.

I ordered a set for my HP 14-dq1033cl with i5-1035G4 that I got at Costco.

Is it better to put in 1x 16GB +4GB ram it came with in the Costco HP laptop or 2x 8GB?

Plan to do light gaming like WoW and DotA 2 other than regular websurfing.

2x8GB will give better performance as all the ram will work in dual channel. That might be offset by having more RAM overall if what you're working on does not fit in the 16GB though.

I think Wow and Dota don't need 20 Gb ram . But if u want it is ok . U can try to upgrade ur video card.

OP, just know that you might get stuck running at 2400mhz. I had to buy the HyperX Impact 2666mhz kit to obtain that speed, since it uses jedec and not XMP on that Cotsco laptop.

wondering the same thing, i couldn't find the answer.
i'm sure it will 'work' but i'm not sure if the bios support xmp to get the full 2666mhz.

i bought the ram anyways, if it doesn't get 2666mhz, i'll just return the ram and get something different.

Any standard speed label should refer to JEDEC SPD, not xmp.
xmp is something extra for overclock easy setup. usually store clock info out of JEDEC spec. For laptop memory, xmp may exist but it is no important. motherboard will read from JEDEC SPD and all labelled speed should be here.

N00b question here. After some quick googling, my laptop bios only supports up to 2400mhz. Will this work? Will it just downclock itself to the speed the mobo allows on the laptop? I'd like my ram to work properly, and not have to return this.

Edit:
So after some more googling. I see this review, and according to the listing in cpu-z, the 2666mhz linked has a 2400mhz jedec listing. So I'm good??
