How much to buy? Tags: Memory Windows 7 Intel i5 Last response: January 12, 2011 6:00 PM in Memory Share HyperFred January 12, 2011 5:37:13 PM I'm about to purchase an i5 2500K based PC to run Windows 7. It won't be used for intense gaming, but I don't want to skimp on memory and then regret it later. If I go with the 64bit version of Windows 7, would I benefit much from using 2x4GB instead of 2x2GB?

Newegg has some gskill ripjaws for about $80 after rebate last time I checked. I've had no problems with the 1600 version. | Report abuse HyperFred January 12, 2011 6:00:27 PM o1die said:You will notice the difference.

I've seen it mentioned that it might be better to buy 1600's to run at 1333, instead of 1333's. But knowing my luck it wouldn't work out that way for me. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Memory>How much to buy?> Related ressources: ForumTH, How much would you guys buy this computer for?
