No idea what ram to get

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Been out of the loop for a few years so I have no idea what ram to buy for my new build.

I7 7700k
Asus Z270a motherboard

Should I just get DDR4 3866? The build is for gaming, nothing else.

Thanks

Can't decide which RAM to get either.
Ryzen 1600 and msi b350 tomahawk mobo.

I see G.Skill RAM recommendations everywhere, but they are not on THIS site which I'm using.
What RAM would you recommend? Probably 1x8GB and I will get a second stick later.

never ... go always for dual channel kit

and check the qvl for compatibility
