8GB DDR3 1333 vs 4GB DDR3 1866 ? - Page 2

Do not expect generic 1333Mhz to hit 1600Mhz due to bottom-end binning practices.
Well then i guess I'm really lucky to be running 4Gb DRR3 value select ram 1333mhz at 1600mhz at 9-9-9-24 1.65v thumb.gif

If that is 100% memtest and prime 95 stable, then yes you are pretty ****** lucky. 9 times out of 10 I always seem to get some sort of fatal flaw on the value ram even at stock settings (my luck probably has more to do with it than anything else). So if you are stable at overclocked settings, then you are very lucky indeed thumb.gif.

@ OP: you know, Black Friday and Tech Monday are right around the corner. It might be better to wait until then and try and snag a samsung low profile kit for cheap. That way you would have your 8GB plus you can overclock it to 1866 with pretty amazing timings.

update-

I just got another stick of 4gb kingston 1333, and my rig's overall response time feels smoother, less laggy.

I was thinking i could put adobe premier project files on the free ram space using radeon ramdisk software
or get an SSD/raptor for the project files.
Whichever would be faster

if you are going to spend the money go with SSD with prices dropping there is not reason to buy high RPM HDD's anymore I have the Samsung 830 and I get about 5x faster speeds than the raptor.

I have my OS on the SSD and programs that I want to utilize the speed then I have a regular 7200 RPM HDD 1TB that I use as a storage drive..

Or if you are running on a budget and you want the speed but need the capacity look into Hybrid drives, they are a decent value
