I currently plan to buy a 4GB 1600 ram together with gtx 750ti and i3-4130. I'm worrying that the ram capacity will bottleneck the overall performance. However rams in Canada are very expensive ($45 for 4GB), I wonder if I should upgrade the ram to 8GB. I have a very tight budget so if it's not necessary, I won't upgrade. I use this computer mainly for high-end PC gaming and watching movies.
If I can only choose to add a 64GB SSD or a 4GB RAM, which improves the performance most?(I already have a WD Blue 1TB hard drive)
for most applications your 4gb will be fine , however if you want to cover all bases especially with high end gaming like crysis3 and farcry3 etc 8gb of ram will be better performance wise, check out the maximum pc requirements on your games not minimum
i disagree 64gb ssd is fine provided you install anything that is not essential to having ssd speed onto another drive ,
I only use a 60gb ssd and have over 500gb of programs that i use plus over aTB of games
How do i achieve this , instead of installing everything to the ssd c/program files i install to another drive , after windows 7 install and only programs i require speed to execute including printer & router i still have 50%of 60gb free. i play many high end games , farcry3,crysis3 etc etc all installed on HDD
An ssd will only improve game loading and saving times not FPS ( Frames Per Second )
