Question for those more knowledgeable than myself:
I recently upgraded to Age of Conan from World of Warcraft, and I'm noticing that my machine is doing a lot of swapping, so it's time to add some more RAM. Currently running 1.5g (3x512 no-name un-matched leftover junk ram). I was planning on dropping 3x1G sticks in and calling it good, but looking over the "Recommended DDR memory configurations" section of my mobo manual, I see that the # and type of modules I use will affect the memory bus clock rate...
The relevant info from the MB manual:
# of DIMMS DIMM1 DIMM2 DIMM3 Max Speed
2 Double Empty Double DDR 400
3 Single Single Single DDR 333
Configuration 1 limits me to 2 DIMMs, or 2GB total memory.
Configuration 2 allows me to have 3GB of memory, but at a lower clock rate.
CPUId reports that I'm currently running @ DDR 200 speed, so either of these would be both a speed & a size improvement for me.
Which of these configurations am I more likely to see better performance from?
Thanks for any replies.
