Nah that's cool

Look, if you have the money for an extra 4Gb then cool, but you'll need the same speed and timings to make the best of it.

Otherwise, if you're just gaming, once again, kinda pointless.

No, you won't. The only thing you'll see the difference in, is memory benchmarking only.

I can feel the difference between 1333, 9-9-9-24 and 1600, 9-9-9-24. But anything over 1600, I honestly cannot FEEL the difference. Either in regular daily use, or in gaming.

With that in mind, I have had my eyes on that kit for a while now personally though. Just something about having the fastest parts possible, even if they do nothing. I'd need blue RAM though.

Not really because of the tighter timings you're running at the moment.

I think in essence though, they will pretty much be the same

I've seen The Sims 3 get memory use up there too.

Do I saturate more than 4GB in my day to day light stuff? Not usually, but to me, 8GB has been a very welcome amount, and I could never go back to less now. I snatched it up years ago when DDR2 was cheap and haven't regretted it since. I love Alt+Tabbing and not missing a beat, less page file usage, overall smoother Windows experience (more prefetch RAM plus Windows just seems to use more when I have 8GB in vs 4GB so maybe it's holding back with 4GB? I don't know).

Don't expect a world of difference and/or faster frame rates though. No way is 4GB too little to where you'd see that big of a difference. Personally though, my ideal is that 3GB-4GB is the minimum for 64-bit Windows Vista/7, and 6GB-8GB is more the sweet spot.

I'd say, if you WANT it, yes, but since you already have 4GB, maybe just look at another 4GB kit. It's be more easy to recommend for the costs versus a new 8GB kit (even though they're not really expensive).

Edit: Here's some interesting ideas on it.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...rade,2778.html

Fully agree!

I actually bought an extra 2x2 GB of RAM because I have a lot of open tabs in Firefox and Opera (more than 50), and you really feel the difference when multitasking. You will also notice if you alt-tab out of games and want to check your mail or open the web browser.

The only reason I still don't list them in my sig is because I took them out. Both 4Gb kits have heatsinks and thus the space between the sticks will all slots filled got much smaller and the ram was getting too hot for my liking. I think I'll buy one of those fan kits for ram.

They are very good. However, bear in mind that the lower timings may not mean that you will be able to run them at those timings. Unless you can get the Patriot memory you already have to run at those timings it will all run according to the lowest common denominator. Either way, the difference is so small you won't notice the difference anyway.
