Gaming Ram (Speed or quantity)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, I have few questions about RAM.


I cant decide to go with quantity or speed from these 2.

Quantity: http://www.arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/G.Skill+/Gskill-F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR-PC3-12800-DDR3-1600-Mhz-2-x-4GB-9-9-9-24-15V-Sniper-123010 Link for qualified mother boards http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=338 (Mine is not mentioned, what does that mean to me ? )

Speed: http://www.arvutikeskus.ee/est/TOOTEKATALOOG/G.Skill+/Gskill-F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM-PC3-12800-DDR3-1600-Mhz-2-x-2GB-7-8-7-24-15V-Ripjaws-X-122976 Qualified mother board list http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=351 (Mine is Extreme 3 gen 3, as I see also not mentioned. )


I kinda like the G.skill merchandise and the shop I am buying my PC from has this assortment of G.skill Rams: http://www.arvutikeskus.ee/est/Otsing/G.Skill+



ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
SAPPHIRE HD6950 2GB GDDR5
i5 2500k
G.skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR PC3-12800 / DDR3 1600 Mhz 2 x 4GB 9-9-9-24 1.5V Sniper
OCZ Agility 3 120GB (110Ls)181.35
Chieftec 620w, Model CFT-620-A12S
CHIEFTEC MIDITOWER ATX BLACK/SILVER [CH-01B-B-SL-O]

The system will be used for editing and gaming, but to make it more straight forward GAMING.

Could you help me make my pick?

p.s

I know this kind of threads were opened already "But I'm a special snowflake"


Nahh, but srsly, I read the quantity vs speed thread to, but didnt get the answer I was looking for.


Thank you

Go for the sniper hands down. The difference between the two (same clock speed, different timings) is negligible in real world performance, but double the RAM will be very useful if you keep a lot of programs open or are using intensive editing programs. As for the compatibility, those both should work in Z68 boards, but I'd still corroborate this.

+1 for Sniper. The amount is very good value

Thanks guys.

Ye, Id like to know if they are compatible with my system. From that compatibility list it seems that Most of the G.skill are not compatible with my mobo. They might work, but will I be robbed of some performance because its not compatible?

In a sense no because it's either going to work or not. Of course you may find that some kits won't work at rated speeds and will at lesser, but that's not what I mean.

Also, there is no 'gaming' RAM. RAM does nothing for FPS or performance in games.

More RAM is always a better option to take than less.
