There are plenty of Cyber Monday RAM deals that won't break the bank, if you're looking to upgrade ahead of 2020's biggest games. Getting a good deal on new RAM can boost the performance of your PC into a hefty multitasking machine.
RAM sticks are a relatively cheap way to improve your rig, and not something you need to upgrade too often. Choosing the right RAM sticks is important because it makes a difference when it comes to gaming, especially with AMD builds, so bear that in mind while out shopping during the Cyber Monday sales.
Many of the Cyber Monday RAM deals in 2019 are on the DDR4 type sticks, and it's a good idea to double-check that the deal you have your eye on is for DDR4. You don't really want to purchase older DDR3 memory at this point. We recommend about 3000Mhz for gaming performance, although if you're on a tight budget you'll be okay with 2666Mhz.
Cyber Monday 2019 should prove decent for RAM deals, with many to choose from at PC component specialists like Newegg. If you're looking for other PC parts to keep up with your RAM then we've got a round-up of all the Cyber Monday PC gaming deals that are live right now.

Geil Evo Potenza 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3000MHz | $49.99 (save ~$15)

Team T-Force Vulcan 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3000MHz | $49.99 (save ~$10)
This is one of the less expensive 16GB DDR4-3000 kits. You're not paying for extra here for RGB lighting (it doesn't have any), it's just a solid kit of RAM for not a lot of money.View Deal
Team T-Force Delta 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3000MHz | $56.99 (save $8)
A fair saving on this RAM. Not premium kit, but it's very well priced, and you're getting $8-off with the code: EMCUUUY23 at checkout.View Deal
OLOy WarHawk RGB 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3600 | $74.99 (save $25)
If you want to make a fashion statement with your RAM, this kit will do it. We're just not sure what statement that is, precisely. Regardless, this unique looking kit hits the sweet spot in capacity at and is relatively fast at 3600MHz.
G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3200MHz | $77.99 (save ~$12)
RGB lighting on RAM does not have to cost and arm and a leg, as this kit proves. It's a fast kit at a good price, by a company that is very much involved in the overclocking scene.
G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 8GB | 3200MHz | $59.99 (save ~$10)

G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB DDR4 RAM | 2x 16GB | $149.99 (save ~$20)
A bigger capacity kit, this one is specifically intended for AMD Ryzen platforms. That's not to say it couldn't run in an Intel build, but the rated speed and timings (18-22-22-42) have been qualified on AMD hardware.View Deal
G.Skill Ripjaws Series 16GB DDR4 SO-DIMM RAM | 2x 8GB | 2400MHz | $49.99 (save ~$80)
Laptop memory can sometimes carry a premium over desktop DIMMs, but that's no the case here. These shortened SO-DIMMs for laptops (and certain mini PCs) are rather affordable.View Deal

Cyber Monday RAM deals—will there be more?
Now that Cyber Monday weekend has arrived, we're seeing a lot of deals starting to roll out right now. Because Cyber Monday is relatively late in the year, you can expect to see the sales running into the Holidays. There's usually a bit of a lull in early December, but with Cyber Monday happening on December 2 and all the deals from that expected to run until a week after (December 9) then you're realistically going to be seeing cheap prices on monitors until Santa's ready to deliver his gifts on Christmas Eve.
In terms of actual buying advice... that's a little trickier. Most retailers save their absolute best deals for Cyber Monday itself, but there's really no guarantee that your chosen kit will be a part of that. If you're absolutely sold on a particular kit—maybe you really like one brand's implementation of RGB lighting—and you see it on sale, don't hesitate to pull the trigger. There will be some great RAM deals on Cyber Monday itself, but at this point there's no telling which specific kits will be on sale.
How to save money on RAM during Cyber Monday
When Cyber Monday rolls around, there's no shortage of great deals in sight. If anything, the biggest problem is the sheer number of options at your fingertips. Online stores will be shouting for your attention—and your money—so it helps to have an idea of what you're looking for. We here at PC Gamer will be combing through the digital store shelves separating the genuinely good deals from the overpriced garbage. While we'll be here to guide you during the event itself, here are some money saving tips to help you navigate the savings.
1. Know what you need in advance
Are you working on a completely new build, or just adding a new set of sticks to your existing rig? Either way, it's a good idea to decide whether you want a 16GB or 32GB RAM kit (smaller and larger sizes exist, of course, but we don't recommend going with less than 16, while more than 32 is overkill for most users). Similarly, you should decide if you care about fancy extras like RGB lighting, or if a simple and clean set of sticks will do the job.
2. Pay attention to speed, but don't stress about it
For DDR4 users, there's almost no point in buying minimum speed memory. DDR4-2666 can be had for basically the same price as DDR4-2133, and even DDR4-3200 often costs a few bucks more. Pay attention to memory timings as well, as lower speeds with tighter CL13 or CL14 timings can end up performing a bit better. In general, however, there's less than a three percent difference in overall system performance when comparing DDR4-2400 to DDR4-3200 memory, so buy whatever fits your budget that fits your aesthetic.
3. Keep a couple of price comparison sites bookmarked
While PC Gamer will be bringing you the best deals we can find on RAM, you need to decide whether or not you're buying at the right price for you. Looking at price comparison sites like CamelCamelCamel can give you a sense of your chosen kit's price history, and whether or not you're actually getting a good deal. It's often tempting to hold out for the 'lowest price ever' but our advice is to just look for a decent saving and not get too hung up prices hitting rock bottom.
