DDR3 RAM upgrade for Asus P8Z77-V LX - Expensive???
So I am looking to upgrade my current RAM of 16GB DDR3 @ 1333Mhz on my custom rig from 2012. The motherboard is an Asus P8Z77-V LX and hasn't failed me yet. *Knock on wood*
I am looking to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, which will be a configuration of 4 x 8GB sticks of RAM. Here are the specs of the motherboard for the RAM capacity, etc. I need the RAM upgrade as I am noticing some lag recently, especially running multiple VMs and some infected with Malware lol.
Why is 32GB RAM so expensive for DDR3? Cheapest is $199.99 + taxes for G Skill at Canada Computers. I checked PC Partpicker Canada, and the cheapest is $209 CDN.4 x DIMM, Max. 32GB, DDR3 2400(O.C.)/2200(O.C.)/2133(O.C.)/2000(O.C.)/1866(O.C.)/1800(O.C.)/1600/1333 MHz Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory
