An integral part of building a good PC is getting good RAM, but prices can certainly fluctuate a lot and be a bit offputting. Fortunately, Prime Day is a bit of a leveller and the opportunity arises to not only give your system the memory it deserves, but keep more of your hard-earned in your pocket at the same time.

Whether you're building an Intel or AMD system, or even upgrading a laptop or small-form PC, there's something discounted on Prime Day to get you moving in the right direction.

It's important to know exactly what type of RAM your system requires before clicking that buy button, though. If you're upgrading an older PC you'll need to check whether you need DDR3 RAM over DDR4, likewise on a laptop even though it's using SODIMM sized memory. And if you are using an AMD Ryzen-powered desktop rig, try and avoid lower clock speeds like 2666 MHz. You'll thank us.

Right now, these are the deals to take advantage of on RAM this Prime Day.
