Quick memory question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, just a quick question regarding DDR2 memory.

At the moment I am in possesion of 2x2GB Ocz tech. gold PC2-6400 @ 900mhz 5-5-5-15 and was thinking if it would make any sense to upgrade to either:

- Corsair Dominator PC2-8500 2x2GB 1066mhz 5-5-5-15
or
-OCZ Flex PC2-9200 2x2GB 5-5-5-18 @ 1150mhz

Would I see much (if any) performance increase? When it comes to overclocking, I'm definately done. My Q9550 reached 3.8GHz with only a slight voltage alternation which I am extremely happy about.

Or do you think it would make more sense to save the money for a better gpu in future?

I'll list the rest of my components if that helps

Asus Maximus II Formula P45
4GB OCZ Gold
Q9550 @ 3.8GHz
XFX 280GTX
300GB Velociraptor
750GB Samsung F1
1000W Cooler Master Real Power

I'll be grateful any suggestions.

the ocz flew would give you best performance

the difference in them timings its hardly anything, and with timings the only real difference youll see is in benchmarkes

if you dont wanna try to oc the 900 mhz's and you definately want an upgrade get the ocz flex's
but imo its not worth it for such a little increase.
maybe save for another 280 or something
