Effect on games going from 4GB to 3GB? Tags: Memory RAM Games Last response: January 31, 2011 11:40 PM in Memory Share Dougx1317 January 31, 2011 9:25:24 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?

Dougx1317 January 31, 2011 11:38:03 PM 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? rolli59 a c 226 } Memory January 31, 2011 11:40:28 PM Fraps would give you the answer http://www.fraps.com/ Can't find your answer ? Ask !
