Could use some help for RAM

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I've got my sig rig since 2007. Yes, it's 32-bit 64 didn't seem that interesting at the time, nor did I have any knowledge of its advantage at the time.

My MOBO is rather picky when it comes to memory, the first one I got was SLI nVidia 2GB (I think about the same specs) but it constantly gave me memory dumps so I returned it. Since then I've got the OCZ SLI XTC 800MhZ (I think it's the PC6400 but I'd need to check when I'm home) and still very rarely get a memory dump, but it's mostly fixed now.

2GB is starting to cut it close, less and less programs take the effort to optimise on memory lately, it's easier to just use the extra memory that people nowadays have.

Dropbox for example can climb to 32MB easily. I really need to shut everything of to eb able to play BF3 decently. And everytime it crashes (which is about every round (2 max)) it takes an eternity to get my comp to respond.

So I want some new RAM. I've also got a Scythe mugen 2, so I don't want to buy anything that won't fit.

I know the DDR2 is alot more expensive then DDR3 but buying a whole new system is not an option right now.

I'm looking at 4Gig, I can only use 3 under 32-bit, I know. But I might chance OS later.

Is this any good? I'm looking at stuff with the exact same specs as the ones I have now, because I don't want to take any chances with my picky mobo.

I don't think a memory dump actually means your ram crashed. It could maybe just be a problem with your OC and when windows crashes it dumps the data in ram to a file. Try setting everything back to stock clocks and run memtest before looking at some new ram.

This is good RAM, cheap value-series but very reliable and widely compatible. I used to sell them on eBay and I've sold 200+ sets with 0 complaints, and that was 2 years ago. I'm sure you'll do fine with those.

When the memory dumps happened I just got into computers when I bought mine. There was no way I even visited the BIOS that time. Now the memory dumps are very rare and have nothing to do with my OC, thanks though

Thanks LuckySvn, I'll go with those then wink.gif +rep
