question on buying new ram - Page 2

post #11 of 27
yea, this ram is fine unless you are trying to go crazy on it then it isn't what you are looking for. But yes, just throwing it in there will make a difference.

Yes, addiing obviously will improve performance. If this is your budget, then yes I agree: go for it. However, I just wanted to point out other options.

its never useless, that will give you more ram and help with ram intensive apps. There is the other route of buying more expensive ram and running better timings which helps overall. thats why ram ranges from 70 for a gig to 200 for a gig

you will notice a difference with really good ram over value ram
even if its the same ammount or RAM , because the good ram better
it will respond better in games, etc etc etc blah blah

and also: overclocking with 4 sticks of ram is BAD

you wont get as high an OC and then you will be all madd

then I will have to the value RAM away for ever and ever
amd you will be forced to buy good ram

if you OC, you OC your RAM.
Period.
when you run a divider, you are overclocking, albiet at a lesser degree
