  1. Gaming pc? Just grab any cheap 1600+ set you want. Ram speed for gaming can safely be ignored. Theres no performance gains in it.
  2. Best answer
    The RipJaws X 1600MHz/CL9 4GB (2X2GB) or 8GB (2X4GB) are cheap and great value for money and will suit your build just fine :)
  3. I agree 100% with mouse24. Check out this article on one of the fastest rams available, specifically the game section and conclusion: http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/adata-xpg-2933-mhz-ddr3-review,1.html

    You got it all wrong buddy. RAM speed has minimal effects in gaming or FPS. Getting anything above 2133MHz (that's on the higher side) is a no brainer. 2933MHz is like made for developers/ designers/ renderers.
    1600/9, 1866/10 or 2133/11 are all good choices, going above this for gaming is not worth it.

    Thats pretty much what he just said. Theres barely any performance difference between ram speeds.
  6. For stock CPU, 1600/9 is perfectly fine for gaming, as gaming primarily uses DRAM as nothing more than a data conduit, if OCing and doing other things with your rig, you'll see improvements with faster DRAM1866/9 or 2133/ 9 or 10 is the best bet price to performance right now and even in gaming, you ppick up a few FPS going up to 1866 and a few more to 2133

    Yup, you did, lol. If you read the article I posted they say the same thing. That it is not worth the difference in FPS for the price you'd have to pay.
  9. Then we all are on the same track! I agreee with Tradesman1 too.
