Oct 23, 2013, 4:51 AM
I was looking to get a new PC and I was wondering which RAM would be better for gaming and photo edition:
- 8Gb G.Skill 1600 CL7
- 8Gb G.SKill 2400 CL10

1600mhz is more than enough. 2400mhz ram is only noticeable in benchmarks so you will not see a noticeable difference in everyday use when comparing the 1600/2400mhz ram.

Any time you deal with large files, high frequency like DDR3-2400 is better. Gaming may not necessary take advantage of such high speed, but everything will run fast and stable.
