Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB

Corsair RAM

This 16GB kit from Corsair is a really good buy right now for a few reasons. The first is that it's a 16GB kit made up of a pair of 8GB sticks. The next is that its 3000MHz RAM, ad finally, it costs less than $200.

Corsair Vengeance RAM has a good reputation for performance and reliability, and the fact that you're getting a 3000MHz kit for $190 makes it a great buy. It even looks pretty good, but you'll have to stick to black to get the lowest price.

If you need a little less RAM, this ADATA kit for $83 might be just the ticket. It's standard fare at 2400MHz and with a pair of 4GB sticks, but it's well priced and even has a little visual flair to brighten up the inside of your rig.

It's a solid price and it's only around for a short time, so it's one to jump on while you can. And if you have enough slots, buying two of these kits will give you 16GB of 2400MHz RAM cheaper than you'll find some kits.

Ballistix Sport LT 8GB Single DDR4


You don't always need multiple sticks of RAM and this single 8GB option from Ballistix (a Micron brand) at $83 is a great price right now. The 2666MHz version is actually cheaper than the base 2400MHz one, which makes it an even better deal.

Only the red color is available at this price, but it'll look great in your rig. If you need more, getting two of these is cheaper than a lot of 16GB kits.

Patriot Viper 4 Series Extreme Performance

Patriot Viper

If you're looking for performance memory, Patriot's Viper 3200MHz is already screaming fast. Not only that but it fully supports Intel XMP for easy overclocking, you know, if you're into that sort of thing.

Currently 16GB is yours for $190 which is a pretty solid price. It should also be a good pairing with AMD Ryzen and Threadripper processors, which thrive with fast memory.
