Corsair has a flash sale with a high-capacity kit of its Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3000 memory. This is a 64 GB kit consisting of a pair of 32 GB modules and, although it has a normal price of $ 319.99, you can buy it for $ 260.99; just apply a coupon code FLASH in the box.
The discount makes it one of the less expensive 64GB DDR4 memory kits, especially if you opt for two 32GB modules (instead of four 16GB modules). At Newegg, for example, even several 2x32GB slower RAM (DDR4-2666) kits without heatsinks cost more, such as TeamGroup’s 64GB DDR4-2666 Elite $ 289.99.

Need so much RAM? For games, 16 GB in general is enough and 32 GB is a bit daunting. Therefore, a 64 GB kit is definitely excessive for most people. The exception would be if you also use your PC for content creation tasks that can be chewed through RAM, such as editing high-resolution photos.
Or running multiple Chrome tabs (no really, although Chrome can be a bit of a memory leak at times).
But if you want to set yourself up with memories, grab a high-capacity kit for sale like this is the way to go. And with this kit, you can even boot the RGB lighting. The Vengeance RGB Pro is also good, Corsair makes some best RAM for gaming.
One thing to keep in mind is that DDR5 platforms are coming out, starting with Alder Lake later this year, followed by Zen 4 next year. TeamGroup has even started selling a DDR5 memory kit (32GB DDR5-4800 for $ 311), though you still can’t use it. If you just want to move on until Alder Lake or Zen 4 arrives, it doesn't make much sense to enjoy a high-capacity DDR4 memory kit.
At the same time, the pending arrival of DDR5 platforms is not necessarily a reason to avoid DDR4. If you’re building a new PC now (luckily looking for a GPU …) or upgrading an existing one in the hopes of lasting several years, hey, save yourself without fear of having buyer’s remorse in a few months.
