So, here I am, sitting on my new, shiny Vega 64, X470-motherboard that should offer some futureproofing when I upgrade my still untouched Ryzen 5 2600. Observant reader might notice that im missing some important components - well, that’s because I feel the prices will come down for RAM - im currently considering G.skill Ripjaws, that promise 2666mhz-clockspeed with C15. But the price, 117.90 eur or $133.8396 seems too high for two little 8GB sticks. Given how Chinas goverment is cracking down alleged price-fixing, I’d still expect the prices to come down. For powersupply, im just not sure yet. I overpaid for the GPU already, so im kind of scared of straight out burning money any more. Also M.2 storage, I will buy some of that for super fast boot times,again, after the holidays probably.
But my main point is: Should I pull the trigger on that memory deal? What are you guys doing? Are you taking the chance to replace any smaller hard-drives left in your build? Can there ever be too much memory, if it costs 70 dollars for 480GB? Or should we all wait for even cheaper SSDs? The deal im referring is this: https://camelcamelcamel.com/SanDisk-480GB-Solid-State-SDSSDA-480G-G26/product/B01F9G46Q8
Do you know a better one? And yes, the bigger models might be cheaper per byte, but not all of us can afford the 1TB model. (especially after some questionable GPU-choices)
