My System Specs

Default Ddr4 2666 vs 3200

Is it worth the extra 80 for the speed difference or is it negligible? 9900k.

Looking at 32gb.

Depending on what you are doing. If you are talking about just gaming then yes there is a difference that can be measured (at least there are some youtube vids showing so) but if that difference is worth the extra $80 is hard to say.

If you're going all out with the 9900K why skimp on the RAM? 3000 @ $250 is cheap enough IMO.
