    Yup. I thought long and hard on this as well as I remember getting Corsair modules and them not working on my last build, so getting these instead, Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3200 MHz DDR4 DRAM BLS4K16G4D32AESE (Red) (who needs RGB when a man is trying to save money anyway, I've had Crucial Ballistix memory before and it was excellent):

    4x of them... no please.... just get 2x16gb modules only.

    I know it'll be faster to run just two, but will it "really" affect performance if I run 4? I checked some comparison videos online and most of them showed that having more RAM can lead to more stable FPS, especially at 4K.

    there are serious caveats.... having more ram for the sake of more ram doesn't make it true...

    there are dual rank and single rank performance differences.. typically many of the 16gb modules are dual rank, thus they tend to perform better in 2 module use over 4x single rank and definitely 2x single rank

    however 4x dual rank modules amplify performance stability or capability issues. Often filling all 4 slots with dual rank memory won't allow you to even get above 2666mhz... much less 2933mhz.

    Your ideal option is 2x16gb dual rank 3600mhz memory, 3200mhz at a minimum.

    I see said the blind man, ok then this is what I will go for, the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 3200 MHz DDR4 DRAM CL16 BLS2K16G4D32AESE (Red) as they are selling for a sweet price:

    Edit: I'm also considering getting this since I don't currently have a Blu-Ray drive for my PC, and no available 5.25" bays in this case, it's from a good brand and is still getting great reviews even this year, should I? I can afford it - the Verbatim External Slimline Blu-ray Writer:

    If the plan is to use it to watch blurays on your computer.... avoid.

    instead get a dedicated set top box with remote that'll plug directly into the monitor.

    Alrighty. I've changed the controller I'm getting for my PC to this one, the Xbox One Controller Gears 5 Limited Edition (and getting a cable for it too):

    Already picked up my Bose QC35ii headphones, so these are more to feed the kid in me.

    Today I bought my best friend these Irons (as I know he had expressed interest in them before, another side note everything will be here by Monday), Callaway Golf 2018 Men's Rogue X Iron Set:

    And I got his mum this new alarm clock as her current bedside one's radio comes on intermittently in the middle of the night, the Sony ICFC-1 Alarm Clock Radio LED Black:

    I got the white one for myself some time in the past and for reasons I can't remember, I didn't like it. I ended up giving the clock to my mother who enjoys it.

    Added this to my wishlist (in light of the awesome Netflix show), The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt Game of The Year Edition (Steam):

    I don't get the thinking of adding The Witcher to your wish list.

    When you said this in the best game of 2019 thread..

    Uncharted is very tame compared to The Witcher.. :confused:

    Really? Oh my, I hadn't seen much on the show yet, I only watched episode 3 just now, it didn't look like things were that bad until I saw the cursed lady monster. Then I was like um yeah I think I'm not getting The Witcher anymore. :D

    Why Steam and not Gog?

    Gog doesn't have tracking that links to www.exophase.com that track your play time and and achievements among other things.

    Edit: scratch that they actually do have a link to www.exophase.com for GOG achievements, the more you know. Guess I'll start acquiring games from there now. Although I do buy the majority of my games from G2A and they only sometimes provide GOG keys for games, so it is still easier to get Steam games.

    GOG has their own optional client which among other things keeps track of your playing times.

    I know lol, but like I said I rarely buy games at full price or at regular discounts, I usually buy them dirt cheap on G2A and unfortunately that is mainly Steam on the PC side. When the option arises from them and it does from to time, to buy the game from GOG instead then I will buy the game off GOG, was on their site a few minutes ago and I do recall them announcing their launcher.

    Plus Steam has a much wider selection of games than GOG, it's hard to find something really desirable in the GOG Winter sale as compared to the Steam Winter sale even.
