DDR2 and DDR3

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a Ep45-ud3p with 4gb of 1066mhz running at 966mhz(ratios), now i want to buy a Ep45t-ud3p and get 6gb of 1600mhz running at (not sure what the ratios will give me)....This is my sig rig btw.

Now will that be a considerable difference in performance.

The performance difference between DDR2 and DDR3 is negligable depending on the CAS latency of the sticks.

If I remember it's something like DDR2 CAS5 1066Mhz is equivilent to DDR3 CAS8 1600Mhz.

You might notice a difference in synthetic benchmarks, but no real difference will be felt.

Unless you do some video encoding or 3D rendering or something, you won't use the extra RAM.

6gb is overkill for gamers. DDr2 to 3 will not increase your fps by 50
