I am contemplating upgrading the ram in my system. I currently run 1 gig of Infinion PC3200. I am thinking of swithcing to Balistix ram, possibley going up to 2 gigs.

Oops just read the sticky so I edited this a bit..... anyway now I know I can up the speed of the ram to say PC4000 but will this be of a benifit to me

I am runing a 2.6c chip on a Gigabyte mb (GA-8IPE1000 Pro2). This is my sandra score.

hey buddy you don't need 2 gb ram unless your doing some serious hardcore stuff like video editing or writing programs if your mobo supports dual channel go to komusa.com and get some pc5000 dual channel 2x 512 and that would give you the ultimate oc you want

I do do some video editing just getting into it. That is one of the reasons I want to upgrade. Just picked up a new DV camera about 1 month ago... I am in the process of teaching myself to edit and produce video... I also just got a dual layer burner...

So no thoughts on if changing to say a good quality pc4000 ram would improve this significantly

Is your CPU currently overclocked? The Sandra results show the RAM only running at DDR384. If you're running a divider and your CPU is OC'd, then yes, faster-rated RAM will dramatically improve performance.

I got this part figured out by changing from the Auto setting to 1.66 setting I have the ram running at 415 now.... Still I will likely get new pc4000 so I can set it to the 2.0 setting and then be running around 500...

thanks
