14.88$ per GB is the sweet spot.

Buy used DDR4 ram if you get the chance. I have built several computers over the last ~15 years and have never had ram malfunction. Make sure it's DIMM since it's a laptop.

I always leery about buying used computer parts though

[–] Armalite 0 points 1 point (+1|-0) ago 

I would never buy used processors, video cards or SSDs/HDs but ram is OK. It is probably the least likely computer part to fail.

60-80 for 16gb (2×8) is good for the stuff compatible with amd socket 4. I forget the actual type

Depends what kind of cpu and board you have, high end cpu ram can be 2 - 6 x more expensive. If you let me know I will have a look

[–] JonReeeeed [S] ago 

cpu = intel core i5 9300h @ 2.4 ghz

main board = hp 85fc (u3e1)

If I understand correctly thats a laptop and actually shockingly has 4 ram slots. Max ram config for that is 4 x 16gb ( cpu max is 128 but the board wont recognise 32gig sticks ). What ram is in there currently?

Max ram config of 4x16g I can find on newegg https://www.newegg.com/p/pl?storeName=Laptop-Memory&pageTitle=Laptop+Memory&N=100007609+601342187 about 200 bucks which aint bad at all imo

eee = 666

Depends entirely upon the clock speed and RAM type. Please be more specific.

Why not just look on pcpartpicker?

I went there to look up my mobo, and it doesn't show up. Which source do you use to reliably show you what ram is compatible with your mobo?

It's been a while since I've done a build but last time I did one I just looked at the motherboard's owners manual and it gave me a list of approved ram. Simple straight forward stuff.
