Hello fellow PC gamers. I have a question to ask. I'm currently still running an FX 8350 and I am getting 80 FPS but the frame rates drop - 40 during extreme moments in gameplay. so I decided to upgrade to a ryzen 2600 X. Haven't ordered it yet, I needed to ask some questions.
First off by going with a ryzen processor will it stabilize those frame rate drops?
And secondly, will one stick of 8GB Ram at 2666 megahertz be enough to run Battlefield 1 and Battlefield 5. Thanks in advance.

    No. You must have dual channel memory to run the game properly. Get 2x4 gb.

    Dual /Tri/quad does seem to improve BF1 frame rate in general but still lots of people on here say they do find 8gb single just fine . Give it a go , if not add another stick

    Think Ryzen prefers dual channel high bandwidth ram so get the fastest you can afford.
    I ran dual channel on one system and single on my other when playing bf1 and there was no difference but that was on 2 intel systems.

    Using single stick cripples ryzen to shet, get two sticks and nothing else.

    Ryzen's performance is dependant on RAM, more than Intel.

    If you have the money, buy 2 sticks of 3200Mhz RAM (or as fast as you can for the money you have). Over 3200Mhz the price becomes very high and not really worth it. You can expect 10-15% better performance in many games, going from 2400Mhz to 3200Mhz.

    Also, if you plan on playing BFV, the beta used more RAM than BF1 (this can change it was a beta) and having 16GB was an advantage.

    I got the Ryzen 7 and went for 16gb 3200 mhz, works like a charm

    You can get a Ryzen R5 2600 for $165, the Ryzen R5 2600X is $225. The Wraith Spire cooler on the 2600X isn't very good so you could get the 2600 and a decent air cooler and overclock it for less money. You really need to buy a better cooler on the 2600X anyways. I have the Wraith Spire cooler and had to replace it because even at stock speeds my CPU was running too warm.

    If you want to overclock, then this is a good solution, if not, buy the 2600X. The standard cooler is not good, but good enough when not overclocking (with proper airflow in your case).

    But you should be able to find an ok cooler for the price-difference between the 2600 and 2600x and the 2600's performance overclocked is better than the 2600x at stock speeds.

    Overclocking can be a little intimidating, but it's really very easy, just read up on the subject before trying.
