Im buildinga gaming pc.
It will use asrock h87 pro4 motherboard with an i5 cpu.
I was told that 8 gb is enough for gaming.
My motherboard will have 4 x ddr3 slots.
Would the performance be bette if i would have
1 X 8GB stick or 2 x 4GB sticks?
Either way they will operate the same speed you will see no difference between 1 8GB stick or 2 4GB sticks. **as long as both 4GB sticks are the same speed. So what ever your preference would be, if you want to conserve space for future upgrades get the 1 8GB if you don't care or have enough space for anything go with 2 4GB sticks. I had 2 4GB 10600 and just upgraded to 4 2GB 12800; But i have all the room i want because i dont have a CPU fan im liquid cooled. I also dont notice the speed difference between 10600 and 12800 the only reason i did the upgrade because i got the RAM for free.
