hi,i got a Gskill 4gb,pc3-10600,CL9,Dual channel RAM installed in my Gigabyte motherboard(G41,LGA775) with a pentuim d 945(stock),checked scores in windows 7 the score was 5.1 for the cpu and 5.3 for the RAM but when i put in a core 2 duo E7200(stock) the scores was 6.1 for the cpu and same 6.1 for the RAM.
So,my question is this that my RAM was bottlenecking by the pentuim d as the scores were less and high with the core 2 duo E7200?
Thanks for u'er time.

The core 2 duo allows faster ram, so with the Pentium you probably ran into a situation where the processor wasn't cable of letting the ram run a max speed.

The processor score will go up but you won't see maybe anymore than a .1 or .2 increase in the ram score. because the fsb of it is already 1333. So I really wouldn't recommend putting anymore money into to. Unless it just is a side project you probably would want to start putting money away for something newer down the road.

In large part it will depend on what you run the DRAM at - with a 9550, should (hopefully) be able to up the FSB to 1600, and that would mean might be able to OC the DRAM higher also and improve the DRAM score
