Make me get some RAM

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I seriously can't decide. I'm buying for the rig in my sig. Since I upgraded from X58 I've only been running on 4GB, which honestly is fine so I don't even know why I'm even asking XD lol.

I mean, I can buy $300 RAM but it just seems retarded. 8, 16, or 32GB? What's the difference? Install a RAMdisk and grow my epeen out by .000024%? Is it even worth it? 1600, 1866, 2400MHz. From a 5% (meaningless (next to 2x 670)) increase in fps to "it will rock my world", I can't tell what to think of it all.

Patriot is going to RMA my old x58 triple channel kit and I'm going to try to work something out with them but they're not picking up the phone right now, and I don't know if they have anything worth keeping in my rig. I wish there was a big sale to just make me buy something cause it was that good of a deal. So

Make me get some RAM. lol

One vote for 8gb of 1866. I've been starting at this for longer than I care to admit, lol. 2133Mhz too!
