Ram Selection

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
im soon to buy this motherboard..


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188055


ill be honest i dont know the real advantages of RAM.. i mainly use 1 Program which is ConvertxtoDVD and a few others like imgburn and few small time programs. I Currently have 8gbs of ram on my current build (haven't updated my sig). But for some strange reason i want 12-16 GBs, but as I said idk know the advantages of having 12-16 GBs. Any suggestions for 12-16GB worth of Ram around the 200 dollar range.

oh...you already have the CPU.

I was referring to the fact that right now sandy bridge stuff is the same price as older, p55 stuff and a lot faster. But you already have a CPU so it shouldnt matter any more...
