post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Yeah, I have tries, I could over clock my old PC (socket A) LOL, my bios set up is funny, the only options it gives me for the ram is a list of timings about 20 sets, dont know what to do in there. Will prob only go to 1200mhz

Yeah, I am more worried about the fact it is DDR2 1066 than the amount of ram, I would be happy with 4 GB of DDR3 1600

You won't notice a difference in real world performance, trust me.

**Looks at his own sig rig**

What's wrong with DDR2 again?

I can beat a LOT of AM3 / DDR3 setups with mine. It's all about how you have your settings tweaked . DDR2 isn't a bottleneck with the x4's. A REALLY GOOD set of DDR3 (say CAS 5 or CAS 6 @ 1600) would certainly be an improvement. But you'd NEVER actually "feel" it, other than synthetic benchmarks.

Your DDR2-1066 is fine .

4gb is fine really, main thing you would benifit greatly with more on is stuff like adobe suites. Most comps I deal with run 4 gb of 800 and they are quite fast, maybe 8gb would let you run more apps at once too but why would you ever need to run everything on your comp at once and I do have 8gb, but when I got it that was only 100 dollars so I splurged some I dont see any real world diff from 4 gb either though
