So I'm looking to upgrade my Legion 5i gaming laptop's memory but have this question... Which should I get? Is it really going to be THAT big of a difference to get the faster memory but half the capacity?

32GB (2x16GB) @ CAS 18 - $169.99
or
64GB (2x32GB) @ CAS 22 - $199.99

Both are DDR4-3200 both are GSkill. I have $180 in gift cards to Newegg so really, the difference is moot.

Do you have a XMP option in BIOS? if not then it likely wont run 3200c18 unless it has a JEDEC profile for it which Kingston is usually best for.
If it is only for gaming then there is no difference between 32GB vs 64GB other than the timings Hell there is bugger all games that would see a difference between 16GB and 64GB if you kept the OS tidy.
