Hi there I have a built a gaming computer and was wandering if I should add another pair of 800Mhz ddr2 RAM 2 x 2GB moduals to my XP 64bit, will it give me a decent performance boost or is it a waste?

~AMD Phenom x4 9650 True Quad @ 2.3GHZ~
~MSI K9N2 Platinum SLI Motherboard~
~PNY 9800GTX+ 738 / 2200 / 1836/~
~ 4GBs DDR2 LED RAM 800Mhz~
~750GB Sata HD~
~Hec X - power Supply 650W SLI~
~Antec 900TWO w/ Side 120mm Fan Mod~

Thank you

Hi.

Add 4GB more will be a wasted of money unless that u work with many adobe applications at the same time.

A better upgrade could be the CPU or safe the money a little more and upgrade all the rig.

I mightt as well save the money I don't want to change the CPU since it runs pretty good if I say so my self, i ONLY play COD4 and MW2 lol and my GPU aint being bottle knecked cuz i'm on a CONSTANT 91FPS since i locked my FPS on COD4 lol so i'm good :p

Yeah I always say the more the merrier. That way enough ram wouldn't be a concern if you decide to do other things down the road. (ie. video editing and such)

I personally don't see any benefits for another 4 GB presently.. You'll gain more benefits by upgrading your cpu or video card.. BTW I've never heard of that PSU brand.. Is that a typo or have mentioned some popular brand in abbreviation.?

And yea about the 4 gigs of ram i'm just going to save the $ if i dont need it then I dont want to waste any more. and for my GPU i'm ONLY playing COD4 and MW2 so i dont need anything in SLI just yet, also the CPU is pretty dam good, $99 for a quad core 2.3 is not that bad to be honest. COD4 at 91FPS at all max so i'm good :D
