The best 4 RAM modules combination

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 2 x 2 GB DDR3 1333 memory modules (dual chanel).I want to add memory in the remaining 2 slots.

1. Add 2 modules (2 x 2 GB)? Total size and combination: (2 x 2 GB) + ( 2 x 2 GB) = 4 x 2 GB = 8 GB

2. Add 2 modules (2 x 4 GB)? Total size and combination: (2 x 2 GB) + ( 2 x 4 GB) = 4 GB + 8 GB = 12 GB

Which combination of memory will be better and faster? 1 or 2?

DDR3 1333 memory

More overclocking potential with smaller cards typically.
8GB is enough for most if any applications.

RAM is fairly cheap right now though. Wait for a newegg Shellshocker sale and spend $40 for 2x4GB 1600 1.5v RAM. can't regret that.

Fill out your system so we know what you have now. Even just 4gb of ddr2 will sent you back $45 at least. If you need ddr3 and want to stay cheap, I would just pick up a set of the 2x2gb g. skill value 1333 for $24, but it all depends on your budget and what you have now.

Different combination of size modules influence on something?
