ah that's true

I'm planinng to use a RTX 3070 on 3440x1440 100hz display so probably it wouldn't matter

Yeah at that point I wouldn't worry to much about the ram and save some money to use elsewhere. I think alot of people get hung up on benchmarks and forget that these are differences between 140 fps and 155 fps at 1080p running on a 3090. If you are playing at 1440p and running a 3070 I would highly doubt that you are going to see any significant difference in performance. 

 

Hi all, i'm about to snag a 5600x and was wondering if the ~5-10% performance increase is worth adding the extra ram?

1 set of 2x8gb 3600mhz Corsair Vengeance LPX will run me about $129SGD which is ~$97USD

The BBQ: i7-4770 / 212x / Tri-X R9 290x 1075/1400 / MSI H87-G43 GAMING / EVGA G2 850W / Corsair Spec 03 / Samsung 840 EVO 250gb SSD / Toshiba 2TB HDD / 8gb Kingston DDR3 1600mhz

Peripherals: G710+ / G502 / Bose Companion 2 Series III / Audio Technica ATH-M40x / Sound Magic E50

Monitors: Dell U2414H

Honestly depends on what gpu you pair it with. If you are going to be gpu bottlenecked anyways at 1440p or higher then it may make 0 difference in performance. If you are shooting for the maximum fps at 1080p on a high refreshrate monitor than sure buy the extra ram.
