Question about my system - Page 4

post #31 of 36
Another thing that should help his PSU is the case. Having the PSU at the bottom makes a big difference imho, it allows it to bring in cooler air to keep it more effecient.

I am not going to spend money to buy 4GB of 800Mhz RAM. That increase won't warrant the fact it will still be outdated in the same amount of time my 4GB of 667 will be(i.e. meaning stuff will be using 4-6GB instead of 1-3GB).


So if I was going to spend the money now, I would get 8GB or nothing.
I thought you were getting 8GB of 800MHz (2 dual-channel 4GB kits). I didn't know you could have 2 different dual channel kits (one at 667 and one at 800).

I was looking at getting four 2GB sticks of 800Mhz.

Wow. If people on here can attest that this will give you a significant performance increase, then go for it. I'll even help you find the best deals. I seem to enjoy doing that now that I have this fast computer. It can actually keep up with me.

But I want to mention again that before you and I know it, our mobos will be phased out, and everyone we know will have 4GB dual-channel DDR3 1333, and X48 chipsets. So, what I'm saying is, I want to get a mobo that supports DDR3 1333 before my mobo doesn't end up becoming a dusty old legacy product. If you got 4GB, you'd be set for more than long enough to get to that point where you could get a good price on a very good mobo that supports DDR3 1333 with the X48 chipset, and you'd never find anything that could remotely challenge your ram, most specifically speaking, the amount of ram you would have.

I think 2 x 2GB (a 4GB dual channel kit) would be absolutely perfect for you since you obviously want to go way overboard to future-proof things as much as we can in this fast-moving world. Not only is it excessive enough, but it's gonna allow Vista to breathe very well from what I hear, since it requires 1GB of ram. But I personally don't know if there's any noticeable difference between 4 and 8GB.

Anyway, I'm a windbag and I know it. But I'm only trying to help you get what you're after and save you from spending money I feel you'd be throwing away.

Hmm, can you do me a favor? I'm pretty sleepy, so if I was offensive or anything, can you call me on it so I can improve myself? That would be cool.

LOL...nah dude you are fine.

I already have dual-channel 667Mhz RAM so I am okay in that dept. I am typing on Vista 64 now. I hope you are right in that the DDR 1333 mobos end up being cheap in the near future, so I will just sit tight for now.

But what you keep missing in what I am saying is I KNOW that 8GB is overkill now. You keep trying to convince that I don't need 8GB now. I know that.

My point was I am probably going to need more than 4GB before the DDR 1333s are cheap, because I only have 667's not 800s or 1000s like some other people. If I was sitting on some of the G.Skill 800's that can overclock to 1000's easily then we wouldn't be having this conversation. But I already felt like my 667 was lacking because it is holding up my OC as well. If I was to go to 800s or 1000s I could maybe get another 200-400 Mhz out of my machine.

There is a guy on here who has my exact same board, processor, everything, and he is sitting comfortably at 3400, and one of the reasons is he has 800Mhz RAM. I am getting a great case in the P182. I am going to have a crap ton of high CFM fans, and I have the best air cooler on the market in the TRUE.

If a little bit better RAM allowed me to get more speed from my Proc, have faster access times, as well as a huge amount of free memory...I was really thinking hard on it...you know?

Plus if I had 8GB of memory I could turn on my page file and really ramp up my system I think.

Either way..I hear what you are saying.

Thank you. You woke me up, so to speak. I think I turned into some kind of broken record there. lol

Yeah, I hope so too that those top-of-the-line mobos become more affordable at least by this summer. I'm just making a guess based on how fast technology seems to be moving. With what I've hard about this evga 680i sli since I bought it, I'm starting to get anxious to get at least a P35. But probably an X38 or X48.



Anyway, what I should've said was "if you can comfortably afford 8GB, then why not get it?"
