When i'm comparing B-die models at 8GB single sticks which is what I use to non b-die the price difference isn't really that great. Maybe with Dual rank memory and higher capacities. Your build has a cpu that was $750 last year and you have a $1500+ 3090 I don't see the big deal in buying high quality memory when you obviously have the bugdet for those other items. But to each his own.For me, there is no way for me to justify the cost on some of the Samsung B-Die memory kits out there for some ePeen synthetic benchmark numbers that translate to nothing in real world usage. I have the G Skill Trident Neo Kits with the Hynix memory in them. 3600 CL 16-19-19-38. I can push it to CL 16-16-16-35 but not any further. Even then I get barely any score increase in my benchmarks. I bought my kits when they were $150 a pop and now the same kits go for $210. The Samsung kits are like $300+ish when last I checked. The price to performance gain for those isn't worth it to me or in my opinion anyone really. GOOD Memory prices for the ryzen builds are not dropping at all compared to other memory. They are going up in fact.
