Ram upgrade for laptop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have this laptop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115866
and I want to upgrade the ram to 8gb, I can get 10% off that as well.

Here is what I was thinking :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231294
or this:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231342

What does OCN think, please feel free to recommend something different
Thanks

um.. one is slightly faster and more expensive!

I don't think you can go wrong with either one, G.Skill is a good brand. Speed doesn't generally matter too much with the newer Intel chips with the onboard memory controller (for desktops at least), but for an extra $5, it would be worth a shot.

Yea I was thinking the samething about the brand.
The faster ram is cas 9 and the slower is cas 7.
Would that matter that much with laptop ram?

The i5 460m is not compatible with 1333, since this is a laptop you will not be able to adjust timings and you will be stuck with 8 GB of ram running at 1066 w/ 9-9-9-24 rather than saving $5 and getting the 8gb of 1066 w/ 7-7-7-20. The first set you listed @ 1066 is the better buy.

That information is not exactly correct. Go to the manufacturer's website and find the CAS listings for each of the individual speeds. My GSkill 8GB set was 1333, and I used it in my i5. It downclocked to 1066 and the CAS went from 9-9-9-24 to 7-7-7-20. but YMMV.
