Ideal RAM Speeds for Ryzen 5 1600?

AmerK

23 months ago

So I've finalised every component of my build and have started ordering my parts, and now it has come down to the memory. Memory prices are through the roof. I'm currently at $1373 of my $1500 budget, which leaves me $127 to find a decent 8GB kit (preferably 2x4GB for dual channel). An 8GB Kingston HyperX Fury 2400MHz RAM kit costs $149....

So my question is, is 2400MHz a sufficient-enough speed to pair with my Ryzen 5 1600 and GTX1060 3GB? I was really hoping to get a 2666MHz kit as that is the sweet spot, but is there a significant performance difference between the two?

The gap between your $127 budget and a "proper" 16GB kit is only $30.
