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.

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...

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
