6gb vs 12gb speeds and latency questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps

I need some advice please.

I've currently got 3*1 gb corsair dominators. I've got my I7 @ 3.8Ghz and mem running at 1600 7-7-7-20 1T

Should I just get:

1. another 3*1gb kit (this will be the cheapest option, but not by much, unless I can get a second hand kit)

2. A 3*2gb kit lower latency 1600Mhz kit (if you recommend this option please give me 3 different kits I should be looking at)

3. The Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz 3*4Gb kit.

I mostly play games and dabble a bit in overclocking.

You advice suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestions, but if I may ask why those?

The 1600Mhz Vengeance kit can do the same speeds as the 2000 kit.

EDIT: Have to add, I live in South Africa, everything is not available, thus I asked for more than one suggestion. So far I would be able to get the Vengeance.

Don't want to spend big bucks for overpriced brands.

well from the just from 3-6 i did not see performance difference , only message stopped showing up (low on ram).
I would get of same ram @ same speed. or u can get 6 gb of ram and have 9 total . i got 6 1 gb sticks. hard to make a x58 chip play nice @ 2000mhz with overclocks. qpi cant do it.

Soz, I should've made it clear.

If I decide to get the 12gb set, I'd get rid of my 3*1gb set.

I don't think I have a shortage of mem, but I do think that might be the one part of my system lacking before I decide to get a SSD.
