Hello....

I was wondering how much Performance Gain would i get if i upgraded the ram in my PC to 16gb DDR4 3800mhz.

Current PC specs

CPU: i7 7700k 4.50ghz
GPU: GTX 1080ti Founders
MOBO: Asrock Z270 Extreme 4
Ram: 16gb Adata XPG 2400Mhz DDR4
PSU: Corsair CX650M
SSD: 1TB Samsung 860 Evo
SSD: 128gb Western digital Green (windows Drive)

Reason i ask is because Ram is dirt cheap right now and i found some Good 16gb 3800mhz Ram for 80 bucks.
 
What resolution/Hz do you game at? At higher resolutions the gains from faster CPU’s & RAM are reduced. Also from the reviews I have seen some games are more impacted by RAM speed than others.

Have you tried overclocking your RAM? Personally I don’t it’s worth it.
