It should run fine at 2400mhz.

That's a good price, definitely buy it.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

For 60 USD fuck it why not, you can always sell it. Otherwise if you are looking for ANY benefit, the only one would be to swap out your memory for his and keep dual channel.

ok ya im going to just buy it why not lol

I mean this is good. If you want newer stuff ddr4 prices just dropped like 25-30% so I would buy before it goes up. I want to return all my ram I just bought now lol I paid $110 for 8gb. Now it is like $60.

as others have said you can always sell it. 

 

as for usecases, just for games i doubt you'll need it, unless you are like me and have like 10 other things including a chrome window with 30+ tabs and a VM open in the background while you play ram hungry games.

one advantage to it is some programs you've used and then closed and open again will load faster because they'll be loaded in ram.

don't buy anything you don't need. It's a really good price and it will work witht the rest of your RAM but is 80 cad worth it for something that you don't really need?
