Memory

Reliable and stylish memory to create your perfect gaming PC

 

A good capacity of fast memory or RAM will make all the difference to your gaming PC. Exactly how much you need will depend on what type of games you play and what else you use your PC for. The speed and number of DIMMs you’ll require will be dictated to by the CPU and motherboard in your PC, so it’s best to check all compatibilities before purchase.

8GB
Entry Level

8GB of memory would be the absolute minimum recommended in any gaming PC. It will limit the type of games you can play without noticing performance issues, but 8GB will support games such as CounterStrike: Global Offensive, Dota 2 and Minecraft without any problems.

16GB
Mid Range

16GB of memory is what we’d recommend for most gaming PCs these days, as it makes more advanced games run so much smoother than on 8GB, but doesn’t cost the earth.

32GB
High End

For streaming games we’d recommended at least 32GB of memory to ensure smooth gameplay and streaming.
