What RAM Should I Get

Recommended Posts

I recently bought this desktop and I would like to upgrade to 16 gigs of RAM.  I just don't know what's compatible and what brand I should get.

Thanks!  

Check out the comments below the link you've sent. There is someone asking the same question and an answer with the specific RAM is given. It is DDR4 with 2666MHz, but no timings are given. Maybe contact the DELL support for that question.

I did and the ram they were trying to sell me was $283 for 16 gigs.  That seemed like a lot....

Yeah thats a log, Just ask them what Timings the RAM has. And then buy it whereever you want to.

8GB is more than enough for games. Most motherboards supports DDR3 ram, so buy the DDR3 module. For the speed i recommend at least 1600MHz TubeMate Psiphon Test DPC. If you're going to buy 8GB, buy 2 sticks of 4GB [usually written like 8GB (2 X 4)]and run it in dual channel mode.

The built in RAM is DDR4 and has 2666MHz.

No this is wrong, it is not about “most”. all recent motherboards only support ddr4. You need to look at the system and decide based on either the motherboard it says or the ram listed. Never recommend something just because it is ‘common’
