Is it worth buying good quality ram?

I am wondering whether or not to buy new ram but not sure if it will be worth it. Currently, I have 1 stick of 8gb Crucial ram @ 1600mhz. Would I notice a significant improvement in games like Planetside 2 if I were to buy 2x4gb Corsair Vengeance ram (still 1600mhz) and use dual channel?

  4. dual channel ram is good in some case and sometimes can improve fps and overall speed. some games it doesnt affect anything others it may same with applications. Be sure to select best answer when your done.

    Would I be able to buy 2x4gb Vengeance ram and use the stick of 8gb i already have? That way could I use tri-channel? If thats a thing

    tri channel needs 6 ram slots. second just yeah you could use your 8gb with anothe 2x4 but it will be in dual channel with a third stick. Dont buy a second 8gb or they may conflict and not work well.
