I would say it is either your CPU or GPU depending on your games & gaming resolution. | Report abuse Emperus Memory Authority December 26, 2010 5:43:38 PM tecmo34 said:No.... your RAM should not be bottlenecking your system for gaming.

I'm afraid that applications can't get the data stored in the RAM fast enough. But that isn't the case? | Report abuse tecmo34 Memory Master December 27, 2010 3:23:02 PM Your RAM is running at 800MHz, not 400MHz. Since your memory is DDR (double data rated), CPU-Z only shows it at 1/2 the speed. You take what it shows and times it by two to get your actual MHz. | Report abuse Remco32 December 27, 2010 6:04:07 PM Best answer selected by Remco32. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Memory>Is my DDR2 RAM bottlenecking?> Related ressources: ForumWill A Q9450 and 4GB DDR2 800 RAM Bottleneck 7850?
