Would bumping my RAM up to 2133MHz help much

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Was looking to pep up my gaming performance a bit on my "Desktop" and was curious if faster RAM would make much difference.

Specs

2x Intel E5-2660
Asus Z9PE-D8 WS
32GB DDR3 1333MHz ECC Registered
AMD R9 390


looks like I can go up to 2133MHz RAM and I can get a 32GB kit for ~$200

Do you think it would make much difference in gaming?

Might make a slight difference as you have 1333 right now, however do you really need 32 GB?
