Thinking of upgradeing RAM

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm looking into upgradeing my 2 year old G.Skill Ripjaws to the new G.Skill TridentX 2400MHz memory.

Performance gains won't be noticeable yeah, But I'll be making a move to Piledriver once it's released, and I could take advantage of the full 2400MHz speed.

Any thoughts?

And there is a 2666MHz version which I might just consider once I get my paycheck through. http://www.ebuyer.com/387314-g-skill-8gb-ddr3-2666mhz-tridentx-memory-f3-2666cl11d-8gtdx

Not sure if the 2666 set is worth the extra timings. You could probably achieve that speed with the 2400 set if you bumped the timings up with it and save a nice $40. G.Skill usually has some OC headroom, don't they?

I think you would better off with 16 GB but slower like 2133 MHz
