Question about which ram i should upgrade to plz help - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If you're feeling the need to upgrade it's probably more likely due to having a standard hard drive. Your best upgrade would probably be to grab a 120 gb SSD. Put your OS on it and the games and programs you use the most. Your CPU is still decent for this generation of games but it would probably be next on the list. 4 GB of memory though is more than enough for any game or whatever else unless you are doing some serious multitasking.

Personally, I wouldn't upgrade for gaming.

More ram won't really affect your gaming. Lower timings or faster speeds will shave off a few seconds off of your load times, but that is about it.

To sum it up, you'll spend ~$70 for something you won't notice in any real world scenarios. Having gamed on 4Gb and 8Gb, I couldn't tell the difference. I'd recommend to save your money.

What I (personally) would do, is save your money and hold off till the next generation gpus/cpus come out.

If you decide you really want some ram, then yes I would chose the vengeance.
