I am looking at buying the MSI MEG Trident X 10TE-1281US. The cpu is the 10700k and ram is 32gb 2933mhz. On xoticpc.com they give the option to upgrade the ram. I read somewhere that 2933mhz is the ideal ram for the 10700k. I want to know if there would be any meaningful benefit if I upgraded the ram from the stock - High Performance 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 DESKTOP MEMORY - DEFAULT to either the

1. CORSAIR32GB DDR4 3200MHZCORSAIR VENGEANCE RGB PRO (4X8GB) DIMM MEMORY+$59.00
or
2.G.SKILL TRIDENT Z RGB32GB DDR4 3866MHZ G.SKILL TRIDENTZ RGB (4X8GB) DIMM MEMORY+$139.00

With price markups like those? H-E-double hockey sticks-no!

You do you, but to me, the price increases are too high for the small benefits those other kits would offer.
Can you guess what the frame increase would be? Guy's down below answer is it might be worth it for 3200mhz. And $59 is a much more reasonable jump in price than $139. Remember, this is for a $2,500 console.

I'm not even going to try and guess that.
Bloody single digit % gains here and there, for 60USD or more - that's what it basically boils down to.

Screw that. I'd be fine with 2933, but this isn't about me... you pick.
