I'm thinking of getting one of two Dell PCs, both with about the same specs - i7 920, Radeon HD 5870 graphics card, etc... The only difference is that one has 12 GB of RAM at 1033 Mhz, and the other has 6 GB at 1333 Mhz. They are both about the same price. Which RAM will give me the best all-round performance, considering that I do both gaming and work with pictures and other media?
If I were you I would stick to the 6GB since with laptops you can't really handle them for too long , and trust me applications and games now dont even use even up 4gb of ram so with 6gb no problems for the next maybe 2years
