8GB (2X 4GB) CRU­CIAL BALLISTIX SPORT LT @ 2,400MT/S $85

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

We’ve seen in the past that In­tel­based sys­tems don’t re­ally ben­e­fit much from ad­vanced mem­ory fre­quency speeds, out­side of more in­ten­sive work­loads, par­tic­u­larly video edit­ing. And with the re­cent fall in mem­ory prices, pick­ing up an 8GB kit of dual-chan­nel mem­ory isn’t quite as daunt­ing as it once was.

8GB is plenty for all your gam­ing needs, es­pe­cially at 1080p. It’s likely that within the next four years, you may need to dou­ble that ca­pac­ity, but only for the high­est of high-end ti­tles. For­tu­nately, the Gi­ga­byte B360 mother­board sup­ports four sticks of DDR4, so it would sim­ply be a case of buy­ing a se­cond set of the Cru­cial Ballistix Sport LT fea­tured above.
