Any suggestion for a good budget 8 gb ddr4 ram
Any suggestion what do you mean by "good"? Are you running Intel or AMD?
Intel works well with cheaper RAM (DDR4-2400 is enough), AMD needs faster parts (DDR4-3600 is the sweetspot for Zen2, but you can get good performance with DDR4-3200).
Do you need one stick? Two?

I'm using Corsair in my daily Ryzen 5 PC. Overclocks to a stable 3200mhz and doesn't cause any issues.
Best check with your moptherboard vendor.

Any information on your rig? How would we know considering you gave us absolutely nothing to work with?
I think he went for the GOOD RAM option :D

Since 2008 WE has been the official distributor of Toshiba flash products for Central and Eastern Europe as well as Middle East and Africa.[3] It also cooperates with Elpida, Micron and Samsung.[1]
It was only half-joke. I actually ditched Kingston in favor of Goodram about 5 years ago (both RAM and SSDs). At least in my area it's the best bang for the buck, perfect for budget rigs. :rockout:

Then you need one identical to the one you already have (I'm assuming you're not going to run that CPU in single channel mode).
Use CPU-Z to find out what you have now, if you don't know already.

Q.V.L.....

If you don't know what that stands for, then you should not, IMO, be building/upgrading any computers :D

And FYI, almost any name-brand ram can be considered as "good" ram in general (I've used just about every brand out there in the past 10+ years without issues), but some will work better on certain systems than others... just stay away from the super-cheap, bottom-of-the barrel crap stuff and you should be ok....

What bug said... and bonehead...

If you have a stick, get the same exact stick to match. Otherwise, go to mobo website and look at the memory QVL list and pick something on there.

no, i knew that in this case i don't have any ddr4 ram so i buy a new one
Better buy 2 x 8GB sticks , be sure you get at least 2 sticks so it can be run in dual channel.

Best to buy ram that's on your motherboard memory QVL.

I rather like Crucial RAM
G.Skill as a personal preference then Corsair. Had stability issues with Crucial in the past. Probaly sorted by now but once bitten and all that.
