I have an Asus ROG STRIX X470-F GAMING, and recently purchased an AMD Ryzen 5900x processor, with an old 1080TI (which I hope to someday upgrade). I currently have 4 sticks of 8 Gb Memory, but I'm looking to make the upgrade to 64 Gb. I would prefer to do 2 sticks of 32Gb if at all possible. I would prefer no RGB if at all possible, but if the price is right, open to other options. Just need a suggestion on a manufacturer to go with. Tried the PC part picker here, but it only really reflects newer purchases. Trying to find something to give me a pathway so that if I eventually upgrade to a newer PC, I can still get some use out of what I have currently as opposed to just having it collect dust somewhere.
What Ram Company / Timing / Stick would you go with? I don't really overclock anything, so.. I was told I should look at 3200 or 3600 as the "sweet spot", just have no idea in which direction to go. Would like to get less than $300, but cheaper would be better. While I don’t get to do as much gaming, I’d still like to have that option available.. And then transition this computer to more of a workstation (hence the 64 Gb Memory)
Crucial is an excellent brand: Crucial 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL22 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit CT2K32G4DFD832A - Green - Micro Center
TeamGroup is an OK (not bad) brand, IMO, and the cost is much lower: TeamGroup T-FORCE VULCAN Z 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit TLZGD464G3200H - Gray - Micro Center
Also, GSkill is another OK brand: G.Skill Ripjaws V 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR4-3600 PC4-28800 CL18 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3600C18D-64GVK - Black - Micro Center
