Mobo/RAM Question

Hello forum


Im thinking of buying a new mobo but tell me is it worth it. This is my problem:

Im using Corsair Dominator 2gb DDR2(1gb pair - dual channel) 1066 RAMs.
But i recently found out that the mother board has some restrictions to memory. It does support RAM at 1066 mhz but only if its 1gb or less. Since i have 2gb, my motherboard is not allowing it to run at 1066, but at 800.

So, shall i get a new motherboard which supports 2gb ram to run at 1066 mhz. Is that 266 mhz gain noticable?

Any advice will be appriciated!

  1. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum

    The difference isn't big, in fact, is very small.

    Small enough to not be noticable in games? Every little fps helps :p
  3. Bear in mind that you only can see 'till 60 FPS, so the rest is only for programs that can read it.

    I use Fraps ^.^
    And ok. I'll invest that extra bit into a 5770 instead of a 5750.

    Thankyou
  5. Fraps can give you 100 or 180 or 200 FPS, the human eye only can see 'till 60 FPS.
  6. Mmm ive noticed a diffference in Counterstrike 1.6, when it went from 60-70 to 99.
  7. Well, surf in the web, i can find that the human eye can see more that 60FPS, but i think that not more that 110FPS.
