So I've been planning to buy a new SSD Hard drive and Windows 7, but my motherboard supports DDR2, and I'd have to buy a new CPU and a motherboard if I wanted to go for DDR3.
So I've been checking these Kingston HyperX T1 1066MHz DDR2 CL5 4x2GB (5-5-5-15) RAMs. I was wondering that how greatly it would effect my FPS/performance in gaming, and would it lift off some of the burden from my CPU/graphics card? I feel that my current amount and speed of ram memory is quite lacking for the games nowadays.
So, would it be worth it getting them, or just roll with my old ones.
4GB of ram to 6GB of ram is noticable on the 64 bit OS as far as hard drive thrashing goes. But instead of throwing money into really old tech, pick up a Sandisk readycache drive. You'll get more of a performance boost per dollar there than on ram in most cases.
