Is upgrading my RAM worth it?

From 2666 to 3000mhz isn't a huge deal but yes 3600+ is will lend you better preformence. I should have specified that 3000mhz ram isnt worth it and that a fairly high speed would be. I assumed that OC would not be upgrading to a speed higher than 3200mgz.

Thanks you for all the answers! I will keep my RAM until I upgrade the CPU. (Which is hopefully after DDR 5 is released and available)

So i am wondering if it would be worth it to upgrade my DDR4 (2600 Mhz) RAM to a higher speed.

 

Would this provide any noticeable performance increases?  

 

My specs are below with detailed RAM information.

 

Thank you

With the cpu you have I dont think its really worth it. If you had a ryzen cpu it would be a different story. If you want to see a preformence increase then get ram with a low latency.

this isnt true. going from 2666 to 3600 is a big deal, even for core cpus.

Going from 8gb 3000 to 16gb 3200 made zero noticeable difference to me so I would say the advantages of faster / more system ram are slightly over exaggerated 🤷🏼
