EVGA 780i How much Ram is Worth It

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I already have 4gb of

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?Sku=O261-8082

Manual says it can take up to 8GB. I thought I read that it is 4gb for Vista 32 bit and 8GB for vista 64. Can anyone confirm this.

Is it worth it to have 8gb over 4gb? Will there be much difference.

Thanks for the help. You can see my specs if need be.

Trust me 4gb is the sweet spot unless you have money burning holes in your pockets as you walk down the street.

the 780i board has a more robust memory controller which means it can take 4 sticks of ram and still run like it has 2 sticks.
