Effect on games going from 4GB to 3GB?
Jan 31, 2011, 9:25 PM
I have been playing around with RAM disks lately. Using them for temp files, cache, ect. Can anyone tell me if I am hurting my gameplay by doing this? Does it affects games when I go from 4GB of RAM to 3GB? How much?

You would see some slow down but with out benchmarking it I can not say how much, you could try that yourself.

That's a good idea. I will try benchmarking. I wish BF:BC2 had a benchmark. What games would you expect to slow? In what way? How much? Would 3.5GB be significantly better than 3GB?
