Increasing your total RAM count or upgrading to a new kit that supports faster speeds and improved timings can be advantageous in a ton of scenarios. Expect increased framerate in games, as well as an overall performance boost in applications that utilize a blend of CPU and GPU. Today, as part of early Cyber Monday 2021 deals, you can get up to 28 percent off on Crucial RAM kits for either your desktop or laptop computer.
We will advise against purchasing a RAM adapter for SODIMM RAM kits if you plan on saving some money and inserting them into your desktop because chances are that your system may not boot. In that case, it is best to purchase desktop and laptop memory kits for compatible machines. For customers that own desktops or laptops with Ryzen processors, it is best to purchase RAM kits that support 3200MHz frequencies as Ryzen chips benefit a ton from that.
If your current system only has one stick of RAM, you can purchase another stick to enter dual-channel mode and increase performance accordingly. You also have 2666GHz or 2933MHz RAM kits available in this deal, but these are for Intel processors. You can still purchase them for Ryzen processors, but you could end up leaving some performance on the table.
All Crucial kits up for grabs are up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM, which is plentiful for the majority of users, but if you are doing some content-creation workload or firing up programs that eat up a ton of RAM, then you will have to purchase 32GB, or in rare cases, 64GB of RAM, which will obviously be more expensive. For the majority of customers, the options provided in the link below will be more than enough, so check each RAM module or modules carefully and make your decision accordingly.
