You may see a small bump in synthetic benchmarks but...for a $100 - I wouldnt. If you game - buy another video card. If you dont game - a late generation hard drive. Either will pep up a system. | Report abuse Fletch206 January 19, 2010 10:37:01 PM Best answer selected by Fletch206. | Report abuse Fletch206 January 19, 2010 10:37:07 PM ok thanks | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Memory>Will I notice a significant performance difference?> Related ressources: ForumWill I notice a significant difference ?
