Best RAM Cyber Monday deals: Save on DDR4 and DDR5 kits today

One of the most important components to consider when building a new computer or upgrading your current one is RAM, especially if you want to play the best PC games, edit video, or even try offline LLM manipulation. Everything eats up a lot of RAM these days — Windows 11 on its own takes up about 4GB of RAM, which effectively halves the capabilities of the fairly standard 8GB of RAM. If you want an upgrade to 16GB, 32GB or even more, today is the perfect time for it because there are plenty of RAM Cyber Monday deals. You should also take a look at CPU Cyber Monday deals, GPU Cyber Monday deals and AIO Cooler Cyber Monday deals for more discounts if you’re building a PC.

Best DDR4 RAM Cyber Monday deals

While DDR4 RAM is the older generation now, it’s still one of the most widely supported types of RAM, and you’ll often find better and more varied deals for these. There’s also the fact that most CPUs and motherboards support having several RAM sticks, so you can buy several smaller and cheaper sticks rather than a few larger ones.

  • PNY XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB 16GB (2x8GB) 3600MHz —

Best DDR5 RAM Cyber Monday deals

The latest standard in memory is DDR5 RAM, which is much faster than DDR4 overall and has a larger upper limit for individual stick size. Also, remember that it’s generally better to go for two sticks of RAM rather than one stick of DDR5 due to the way memory banks are arranged and in terms of optimization. This also generally holds true for DD4 but is more important for DDR5.

  • Kingston Fury Beast 8GB DDR5 CL36 —
  • Corsair Vengeance DDR5 RAM 16GB (2x8GB) 5200MHz CL40 —
  • Teamgroup T-Create Classic 10L DDR5 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) 6000MHz (PC5-48000) CL48 —
  • Corsair Vengeance DDR5 RAM 32GB (2x16GB) 6000MHz CL30 —
  • Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR5 RAM 32GB (2x16GB) 6000MHz CL30 —
  • Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 32GB (2PK X 16GB) 6200MHz DDR5 C36 —
  • Crucial Pro RAM 96GB Kit (2x48GB) DDR5 —

How to choose the right RAM for your computer

The first and foremost thing to consider is how much RAM you actually need. 8GB is certainly a minimum, but we’re quickly getting to a point where 16GB should be the norm for a generally smooth experience, especially if you game. You could go with 32GB if you game a lot, but RAM is rarely a bottleneck, and unless you’re a power user with dozens and dozens of apps and tabs open, it won’t be worth it. On the other hand, there are some applications where a lot of RAM can help, such as with programming, CAD, and video editing, all of which will do better the more RAM you have.

Beyond just the size, though, is also the specific speeds of each RAM, which is a much more complex topic because it involves not only the frequency but also the latency, so we suggest you check our guide on RAM speed for a more thorough breakdown. It’s also worth looking at our analysis between DDR5 vs. DDR4 RAM to see which one suits your needs better, especially since DDR5 is still relatively new and isn’t as optimized as DDR4.
