If you haven't upgraded your RAM in a while, you might want to think about it. RAM is one of the simplest things to upgrade on your PC that leads to one of the largest steps up in performance. With better, faster, and more RAM you can do so many more things on your PC. It is the key to multi-tasking with multiple programs or loads of browser tabs or whatever. The more you do on your computer, the more RAM you need.

Over the last couple of years, thanks in large part to things outside all of our control, RAM prices skyrocketed and fluctuated a lot. These days, though, the prices are normalizing and deals can be found once again. Of course, the release of the new generation DDR5 SDRAM in 2020 means good things for deals, too. DDR4 was around for a long time and is still perfectly viable, but as the latest version is adopted more and more the previous generation will drop in price.

Whether you're looking for the newest tech or just want to upgrade an older machine, we've got all the best prices right here. 

Best DDR5 RAM prices:

1. Corsair Vengeance 32GB 4800MHz

Speed: 4800MHz | Timing: 34-35-35-69 | Voltage: 1.10V | DIMMs: 2 x 16GB

Very similar to other RAM on this list, this is the cheapest because it's the slowest, but that don't mean much when the speeds are already much faster than most DDR4 kits. The price is its lowest ever considering it was going for as much as $260 in May 2022.

Speed: 5200MHz | Timing: 38-38-38-84 | Voltage: 1.25V | DIMMs: 2 x 16GB

We saw this RAM drop to $180 for Prime Day, but it did bounce back up in price a bit afterwards. Right now it has actually beaten that price by a bit, which is great considering it was going for as much as $250 in May.

3. Corsair Vengeance 32GB 5600MHz

Speed: 5600MHz | Timing: 36-36-36-76 | Voltage: 1.25V | DIMMs: 2 x 16GB

Another member of the Corsair family going on sale, but this one comes from Best Buy this time. Essentially you just need to decide how much you want to spend and what sort of speed you want, but you should be able to find a good deal with the Corsair Vengeance lineup if you're looking for DDR5.

We actually shared a deal on this RAM during Prime Day when it had dropped to around $270 because that was pretty impressive compared to its regular price. This deal blows that one out of the water and is easily its lowest ever.

5. G.Skill Trident Z5 32GB 6000MHz

Speed: 6000MHz | Timing: 36-36-36-96 | Voltage: 1.35V | DIMMs: 2 x 16GB

This memory kit has been steadily dropping in price over the last several months. In February 2022, it was going for as much as $470 with incremental drops since then. Later last year, it hit a new low of $320. And today we're breaking records all over again. Will it go lower? Who knows, but I'd hate to see it jump back up before you grabbed it for yourself!

Spotting RAM Deals

RAM is hard to track as far as finding the best value from every iteration. There are just so many brands and so many capacities and so many different speeds to keep track of. The best way to to decide what RAM works for you is just to decide how much of a capacity you need and then how much money you want to spend. Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg are the top online retailers for the best RAM deals, but you might be able to find some solid discounts at local computer stores, too. Check out the Windows Central Ultimate RAM buyer's guide for more information on making the best decision.
