Hi, could somebody advise me whether or not DDR3 1333 is worth paying £70 more for over DDR2 800. I'm pairing 4GB RAM with a Phenom X4 965 for image and video editing. Will the DDR3 make any real difference? Everything I've read so far seems to say not, but a lot of the articles were writtena while back when DDR3 was significantly pricier. Thanks!
Thanks - I guess that kind of answers my question but from your response I don't think my question was particularly clear. I'm building from the ground up with this processor and RAM spec and simply don't know whether to opt for DDR2 or DDR3.
I don't how different prices might be in the UK, so IANAE, but
Unless you have found really cheap DDR2 or are looking at really expensive DDR3, you should be able to find 1333 DDR3 at a much lower premium than 70 quid, and the premium you will have to pay should be worth it...though if 70 pounds more is the best you can get, I would personally just say screw it and go with the DDR2.
