Hello Guys,

I just need your suggestions about this.

which is faster when it comes to 3D visualizing, gaming, rendering, video editing, etc.

In intel systems the speed won't matter much beyond 1600 mhz. AMD APUs are more sensitive to RAM speed as they need the bandwidth for graphics work.

You would want more RAM for rendering. Faster RAM would also help, but a little less. You can however purchase 1600MHz RAM then overclock it. The limit to this would depend on the RAM, motherboard and CPU, though. I bought 8GB of 1600MHz and OC to 2133MHz. The benefit did not show in games, but did in video encoding.

This does not apply only to amd apus, it applies to any igpu since they use ram as vram. It also won't apply to apus if you aren't using the igpu.

In this case, more ram is going to make more of a difference than faster ram since 4gb really isn't enough these days for anything intensive.

Cause currently i have a

Patriot Viper ii sector 5 ddr3 2x2gb 1800mhz OC to 2154 mhz

But since i'm planning to make it as a rendering rig. 3d stuff. is it advisable to buy

4 x 8gb HyperX 1333 mhz rams?

1333 is usually the same price as 1600. I even see 1866 only $3 more than 1600. If it's 1.5v then it could probably oc higher. Your cpu is what's going to make the most difference though.
