Why spend $60 for another 4GB, when $80 could buy you 16GB of some very fast RAM?

Look in the online deals section here at OCN for the 1.35v Samsung 2x4GB 1600 sticks. wink.gif At bone stock they don't look like much (really loose timings at 1600), but they overclock very VERY well.

EXACTLY my point on one matched 8 GB. RAM kit for $40 vs another of the OP's original 4 GB. RAM kits for $60.

right, i'm understanding the difference now.

i'm looking for new sets of RAM. so i'd consider 16GB for 20 more than just 4GB



does, having a blueray rip of 1080p on a 46 inch tv , and playing bf3 on my 23 inch screen , and more during all that? apply? , not looking to make it faster . let me use lots of applications, tab in windows, more like multi-task, having a bunch of windows / screens up , thats what RAM is basically for . would it take some strain off my GTX 560 ti ?

Yes if you want to run multiple apps concurrently then more RAM - up to a point is better. Assuming that you are using a 64-bit operating system then more than 4 GB. should be useful. The extra RAM won't reduce the load on your Vid card however as it has to process all of the video data regardless.

yeah running 64-bit for 16GB , i know 32bit wont read past 4 GB .


im just looking for some good memory about 16GB , would 1866 ram be better than 1600 ? what is the difference?

Higher frequency RAM *may* allow you to OC your CPU higher but just increased RAM frequency above 1333 MHz. doesn't show any tangible performance gain in real world applications. With a 955 BE CPU you don't really need the higher frequency RAM per se to OC the CPU so it depends on potential value vs. cost IMO.

Unfortunately there is no way to know if the higher frequency 1866 MHz. RAM is of any benefit or not without actually testing it. If you found a 16 GB. 1600 MHz. and 1866 MHz. RAM kit for the same price or real close, then it might be worth a few bucks to try the faster 1866 MHz. RAM, otherwise most people just go with 1333-1600 MHz. for the Phenom II CPUs. Deneb model CPUs are not known for running RAM above 1800 MHz. very often. Some mobo BIOS also limit the RAM frequency to the default 1333 MHz. when all four DIMM slots are in use. You'd need to check with your mobo maker on that if it's not stated in the mobo owner's manual.
