Upgrading DDR2 800mhz

I currently have 2x2gb DDR2 800mhz, and am looking to upgrade. The fastest RAM my motherboard will take is DDR2 1200mhz. It's not DDR3 compatible, thought I wish it was.

My question is, all things being equal... is there a decent performance increase from 4gb of 800mhz to 1200mhz? Would it be better to just buy 4gb more @800mhz and have 8gb total?

I use this desktop primarily for gaming, and a good amount of that is online. MMO/FPS

Any advice?

  1. For gaming the RAM you have is perfectly fine, you will see no increase in performance by adding more RAM or by going 1200. Upgrade something else.
  2. I will definitely be upgrading my GPU, but was also considering the RAM.
