Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4GB or 8GB for gaming? +REP :)

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
hi guys, (srry for bad english)

Ive ordered a Asus P8P67 with a 2500K , now i need a decent, cheap, stable memory.
I really like the Corsair Vengeance ddr3 1600 9-9-9-24 1.5V it can be overclocked to +2000mhz. It has the XMP function etc. and lifetime warranty

There is a 4GB (1x4) and a 8GB(2x4).
The difference in dollars is $50 ( ~€38 )

Shall i buy the 4gb or the 8gb version? Is it worth the $50 difference? It will be a gaming computer.

Reviews here!

tnx! +rep to posters smile.gif

4gb is more than enough for now.(as far as gaming goes, you can run 2 games simultaneosly biggrin.gif)

also, i reckon 8gb will only be barely needed by end of 2011 or q1 next year. yes some big titles are coming out this year.

to be honest, get 4gb now, get 4gb if needed after crysis 2 comes out.

If it is a gaming computer, 4gb is enough. 8 is kinda overkill.

If you aren't playing Half Life 2 Cinematic Mod 10, then you won't see a major benefit of grabbing more ram.

Here is an article for your reading pleasure on the subject:

I guess it's too late to tell you, but you should get 2 sticks of 2 GB, not one stick of 4.

Do it for the lulz.

Nah seriously I personally would get the 4gb, spend less money now and upgrade later if needed.
