Ram Upgrade worth it on my platform?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Memory
a.) I think this is probably going to yield me the least bang for my buck.
b.) I did overclock the FSB one time and my computer cooked like I never thought it would on Crysis for about 20 seconds before crashing. Is there memory with different timings that would stand up to this better or am I just barking up the wrong tree going for a front side bus overclock on this platform?
c.) What would I even want to upgrade too if I were to upgrade my memory?
I know enough about overclocking to be dangerous and am trying to learn more.
d.) Only game I've ever had max out my memory is Skyrim and that was because it had a memory leak issue where the longer you play the more it would use.
e.) GTA V Seems similar in the longer that you play the more it will use too.


Edit: Keep in mind I am considering a Raid 0 array with 3-4 256GB Crucial M4 SSDs. Any special memory considerations that could help utilize the array to its full potential?
