New guy here.. Sorry... So lots of ram - Page 3

Yep smile.gif

Thank you all for the kindness so far.

Yes, I was ready to drop a grand on RAM. I've been a programmer for almost 20 years now, and a gamer for a few years more than that. I can afford it, so I was going to do it. I want a stupidly fast system for rendering and gaming.

Current plan now is the best ssd I can find for the OS and 4 seagate cheetahs to raid 10 with. I have a windows 7 ultimate , a photon 1050 PS and just have to figure out the ram and settle on cooling and a vid card.

Going to read article now - will be back with more newb questions...

OK, so I understand the timing thing now, that's great information.

Bear in mind that the board I am buying creates a "Ram Drive" at least that's what I used to call it back in the day - and also, just in case there's a leap in memory use, I'm gonna be a bit stubborn and use 16 gig sticks.

So these?

Are there ones with better timing?

And a tutorial about overclocking ram would make me less jittery .

Back in the day we were ram starved. Right now I'm sitting here with my usual stuff open and windows 10 is using up 2.5gb out of 16gb of system ram. Max usage I've seen is around 10gb while gaming and using 2gb for ram disk. Ram ain't what it used to be. biggrin.gif

Tell me about it.

What sucks is now that I CAN force feed ram, I'm being told by all these kids on my lawn that's bad!

MS kept up with bloatware, but missed the bus on Mem Usage (see what I did there?)

I remember there was a push to get win 95 running on RAM - Has anyone tried to load the latest versions to ram instead of HD for primary boot?

I say if you want a lot of ram go for it. Better to have more then you need then not enough. No point in trying to save money if you don't need to. I doubt there will be a time where you look at your computer and curse all the ram you have access to. thumb.gif

It's funny to see some in here are to young to realize that a Pentium II could in no way address or support 128GB of SDRAM.

Pretty sure he meant 128mb.

128 megabytes...

I made the typo about my alienware. (pre dell when they were in florida and WORTH IT) That was also when I got my Viewsonic 19 inch CRT.

Is Viewsonic still making primo displays?

Also, Chargeit - It's Ironic with your handle saying "It's ok to spend!"
