Hey guys and gals! I got a quick question for all of ya. I recently upgraded to a 64-bit OS (Windows 7 Ultimate) and I guess when you do that 4GB of ram is the "New" minimum instead of the max. So I went ahead and bought another 4GB of ram to give me a grand-total of 8GB mem. So will this really give me a noticable boost in games? Call of duty black ops? Crysis 2? Thanks! :sol:

Depends on the game -> FPS http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ram-memory-upgrade,... AND Performance http://blog.corsair.com/?p=65

When I went from 6GB->12GB I got an average 4~7 FPS in Crysis, but that's my set up on Intel X58. I never looked at the CoD FPS difference. CoD is a memory hog so I would assume the same increase.

Answer is they both suck-up RAM appx 2GB, but the real number to look at 'now' is the Graphics / Shared system memory won't be touched with 8GB. Meaning Apps won't be drawing from 'Graphics / Shared system memory' because you ran out with 4GB.

Really meaning 8GB is no longer a worry...
