I have Ryzen 5 2600 + MSI B450M BAZOOKA V2 + Kingston 8 GB (2x4GB) DDR4 2666. What will be better:
1. Buy same 8 GB ram = total 16 GB 2666. Cost for me ($50)
2. Buy new 16 GB (2x8GB):
1. 3000 cl15 ($89)​
2. 3200 cl16 ($98)​
Save money or spend more?
The difference between my mobo running the ram specs with base settings 2600 or something and setting the ram to its rated 3600 was a 20fps frame increase in all games. Faster is better.
