i7-8700 (non-k) and ram speeds

hey forums,

i have a i7-8700 and a rtx 3070 and my friend who has a r5-3600 and a 1660ti is getting better fps then me and doesnt have lag spikes on the game we play.

he has 32gb 3200mhz ram. i have 16gb 2666mhx ram the game we play minimum is 16gb of ram. it takes a good bit of ram. 

is it worth upgrading to atleast 3200mhz?

No. There will barley be any performance difference. RAM prices are also up, which makes it even harder too justify

(Also if you have a B series board your RAM can't even go past 2666)

what do you think the issue will be?

I am going to assume those games are multiplayer. Those "lag spikes" are related to other things more than ram. Your internet connection, apps running in the background, your ISP, your location, your CPU, storage device where you are running the games from. I wouldnt get higher speed ram in the hopes of reducing ping and/or "lag spikes".

Most likely sleep deprived.

Your connection speed has no influence on your ping.

Most likely sleep deprived.

I am hoping that ping is to the game server and not on some random server on speedtest.net. If thats the case there are still lots of variables in question, adding to the ones I listed below; your router, your modem, your ethernet controller on your motherboard. Best thing to do at this point would be monitoring if those spikes are caused by your CPU/DISK/GPU. Finding the exact cause of ping spikes is probably the hardest thing to do in the computer troubleshooting.
