Should be a pretty simple question for a lot of you, my system is as follows
Mobo :- msi g54 870a
CPU :- 955 BE 4.0Ghz
GPU :- 7970
Ram (current) 4gb mushkin enhanced
My Machine is dominantly a gaming rig.
I want to upgrade to 16GB of ram, which would be the best choice for me?
Should I go with standard 1333mhz ram, or maybe something higher? would I see the benefit? I don't mind paying 50-80£ on some good ram as long as it warrents it, still recommend more pricey ram if you think I would see the weight in gold (absolute max £100)
there is small improvement in games when using faster ram, you will see 5 fps increase maybe
go with 1333 or 1600 and make sure to bump the ram voltage a little bit as you will be running more ram sticks so it will need more power to be stable
I also thing using 2x8gb 1600mhz ram would be the best way to go about this. And you don't need any of the fancy heat spreaders unless you find a good deal since you won't be overclocking your ram (im assuming).
Also, you should probably go for 1.5v ram (as opposed to 1.65v).
