    8GB stick of DDR 4 ram price


    I'm thinking of adding a second stick of this RAM

    The going rate for 8GB of DDR4-2400MHz of memory is about $70. Is that dive on it cheap? Wait for Black Friday pricey? Right in the middle?

    Be easier to check when knowing the make and model of the computer. I use Crucial US | DRAM, Solid State Drive (SSD) & Memory Upgrades a lot but there's others such as Kingston. Can't give a vendor name but some OEMs use Hynix, solid performer in their computers and I salvage it to use in computers I rehab.

    70 for an 8 GB stick of DDR4 2400 is a decent price. Not "dive on it cheap", but probably below average from a random vendor, without knowing more details.

    RAM is nearly double what it was a couple of years ago.

    Whether it will do you any good is another question entirely.

    If you have good reason to believe it will help you out, may as well go for it now. It's not very likely it would be 20 or 30 cheaper on Black Friday. Possible, but not likely.

    The photo you included shows 2 sticks installed, which would be 2 x 4GB. Does your computer currently have 2 x 4GB sticks installed or 1 x 8GB and you want to add a second 8GB to increase to 16GB?

    Thanks for feedback all. Group response --

    Speccy reports that I have this:

    so I'm pretty sure I have a second open bay. (Crucial reported the same thing, I believe.)

    I'm looking at something like this

    I'd really prefer to pay something like $49. I'm in no hurry, it's just that I'm about to open up this PC and clean out some dust and I figured, while I'm in there, doubling the unit to 16 would help me not sweat seeing this --

    -- and allow me to have all sorts of windows open.
