Worth it to get another 6GB of Ram for 12GB total?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I am doing video editing for my friend's clan which plays COD, and for me and my clan who play BF3. When I am doing longer compositions in After Effects, RAM Preview and rendering really take a hit. Seeing ram is so cheap now a days, would it be worth it for me to get another 6gb for 12gb total, or maybe even 24gb if I can find a good deal? How much will this affect my overclock?

Thanks!

Someone worse at algebra than me! In the title, 6 + x = 12, x = 6.

OP, it shouldn't hurt to add 6 Gb at 1600. might have to bump thye VTT a bit.

Ah, OK. I guess I'm still worse at algebra & fail at reading comprehension...
