Quick Question, Regarding Ram

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm currently debating what ram to get for my upcoming sandy bridge build, and am wondering which of these would be better:

4gb 1600mhz cl9 (2x2gb)
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=39479

OR

8gb 1333mhz cl9 (2x4gb)
http://www.lapstore.fi/product_info....ducts_id=43772

I'd like to get the 8gb kit, but not if it'll hurt my performance.

Faster ram will give you better performance in gaming. Why two sets of the first option?

It won't hurt your performance at all. Do you even need 8 gigs to make it justifiable? But if you want it, go right ahead, it wouldn't hurt, except for being slightly slower with the same timings, but then again, it won't be a very noticeable difference except for benchmarks.

I would go with at least DDR3 1600 for an SB build.

You shouldnt notice really and you could always OC the 1333 but 1600 is probably the way to go. Anyway you can grab some lower cas?

AMD benefits from lower cas in conjunction with speed whereas Intel does more from speed, as I've understood it? I'd like to see benchmarks, but that's the impression I've gotten. *shrugs*

Here's a nice little benchmark if you're looking for it.
