Most of us here are aiming for 50ns latency on AIDA. You get 70? Your RAM then is better than most of us!
my mboard is a quad sli or tri-fire
I hate to put just one card in this thing.
I already want a mini itx rig don't make me want it even more by taking my sli or cfx away
with the mini itx I been wanting to build for sometime I was already just gonna get a power house for it single card solution or maybe dual gpu single card.
ok so your thinking a TI would be good for my 1080P ultra preset settings and my cpu @ 4.8GHz (yes ill up the ram later as far as quanity) but I might just get the matching 2x2GB pair.
ok I listening. I don't mind buying used but like to have a warranty like evga does through guest rma
Your current build's memory is completely broken. You are not even using dual channel memory because you have an odd number of memory sticks. So you see all these benchmarks that are talking about dual channel at 1600mhz? In single channel, you can basically divide that number by two. So you're basically running the equivalent of 666.6...mhz ram.
I would be nice to you about this but everyone has been fed up with your stuff. Every motherboard manual I've purchased that supported dual channel ram had gigantic warning labels in the manual stating memory must be installed in pairs. You clearly didn't even touch the manual before you started to build your computer, and you're clearly not in a position to be making decisions on how to fix your current situation. Stop and absorb the fact that you've spent hundreds of dollars on something you built yourself and you haven't even touched the manuals for anything. Are you that lazy with your money? Or do you not understand that 2 + 1 is not installing memory in pairs?
Do you think it's some sort of magical coincidence that your read and write (BANDWIDTH) scores are half of what they should be? It's because you're using single channel instead of DOUBLING your channels to two and getting double the bandwidth.
You can go buy whatever the heck you want. But the only thing that's going to fix anything is going to be fixing your memory problems. And it doesn't matter if you were AMD, Intel, Via, or who else cares. If you're not configuring your system properly it's going to run like trash.
I don't know if you have some sort of problem with admitting you've completely screwed up your system or what. But the fact is you made a mistake with that RAM and that's entirely where the problem lies.
You clearly seem to be the type of person who thinks that they can never screw something up and that everything can be fixed by throwing money at the problem. So spend more money on a new graphics card and then wonder why it's still slow. So then blame the AMD CPU and switch to Intel. And then when it doesn't fix the problem maybe then, after spending hundreds of dollars, you'll finally man up and realize you screwed up royally with your build and you were being completely ignorant.
