Hy guys, i have 3 ltl questions to make and i would apreciate a lot if u could help me those 3 questions are :
For gamming ( the nex 2 years aprox) is there too much dif bettween an i5 and an i7 using the same ram and the same gpu
what is "DDR3 " in a videocard
is there a lot of diference between a ram at 1333htz and a normal one
1) Almost no difference in a majority of games. If you have a cpu bound and multi threaded game like FSX, then i7 will be better.
2) DDR3 in a video card is the type of ram used on the card. DDR5 is faster, and more expensive. The type of ram in a video card has NO relationship to the type of ram required by a motherboard.
3) Faster ram and lower latencies do not translate into better application times or FPS(compared to synthetic benchmarks), perhaps 1-3%. Jacknaylorpe explained the implications for high overclocks well.
It is more important to get sufficient ram. 4gb should be the minimum these days. 6gb is a sweet spot in my opinion.
