Best 32GB RAM kit or 2x 16GB kits

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I was just about to upgrade my RAM from 8GB to 32GB and was looking for an opinion on which to get. I would love to keep it sub $300 if possible but would got to $350-$400 if it's necessary smile.gif

Thanks

I purchased a Corsair 32GB 1600 10 10 10 27 Kit for $200 from micro-center.

Its price has gone up slightly since then, but still a good deal.
