Upgrading DDR2 800mhz Tags: Memory DDR2 Motherboards Last response: September 29, 2010 3:26 PM in Memory Share alrasl September 29, 2010 3:16:53 PM 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?

Upgrade something else. m 0 l alrasl September 29, 2010 3:26:16 PM I will definitely be upgrading my GPU, but was also considering the RAM. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
