Best AMD Ryzen 5 2600 compatible RAM Windows Central 2019

When looking at RAM for the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 CPU, you'll want to pay attention to the speeds of each module and the capacity. The sweet spot right now for the processor is at least a kit of 16GB RAM clocked at 3000MHz. I've rounded up a few examples to get you started.

Galleon RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB Kit

If you want to futureproof your PC or happen to do video editing you'll want to invest in 32GB of RAM. This Corsair Vengeance kit is the same RAM modules as our first recommendation, but just with double the capacity of 32GB. In the long run, it'll be better value to pick this kit up now than at a later date, but only if you have the budget.
