8 Gigs to 4 Gigs or RAM - Page 2

post #11 of 16
On my system I have removed one of my ram kits(4GB of 8GB total) and I have to say that the system is more zippy as a whole with a total of 8gigs. I picked up a 1-2% FPS in game's and apps seem to respond a little better, not by much, but I noticed the diff in my system.

Depends what you do.

On my #2 PC I run many mmo clients at once. I use well over 4gb of ram.

On my #1 PC (also with 8gb) I hardly use much at all.

& now I see your post, yeah, you do not need... but I mean, why not just hang on to it.

- and I agree with Khaotic, it's more zippy for sure. Atleast it was to me.

This. Playing games you will not probably notice anything, but just general Windows apps and stuff it will be a little more snappier. At least thats what I noticed.

I moved up from 2gb to 10gb a couple months ago when newegg had a great deal on a 2x4gb set. Windows was a bit quicker but theres absolutely no difference in my gaming or benchmarks except for Supreme Commander and GTA. I haven't noticed any difference in any other game.

Exactly, the only reason you see the difference is because both those games have to cache large amounts of data to be used all at once or executed very quickly.

If you are only gaming, no, you won't notice a difference. Ram is so cheap right now, I think you would have a hard time selling them for a good price. I'd keep it for another build.
