  1. If it's at same price go with 8GB RAM. 4 GB is the minimum required.
  2. thnx and yea idk why the link didn't work the 1st time. XD
  3. I don't know what RAM you are trying to compare because both of your links are faulty and the keywords after each don't work in newegg.

    I will say that $30 is low for a new 8GB RAM kit. If there is such a price for an 8GB RAM kit then it is probably used and should be avoided like the plague. $30 is slightly too much to pay for only 4GB of RAM. For RAM 4GB should be about $25, 8GB should be around $45, and 16GB should be around $90.

    Unless you do huge amounts of compression or rendering I strongly suggest getting 1333MHz or 1600MHz RAM, of which any set should be very close to the prices I gave you.
  4. i fixed the link o,o the only differences from the 2 ram is 4gb and 8 gb the 4gb has a 2n w.e that is and there new.
  5. Looking at that 8GB kit it is probably just on sale, not a used kit. Considering it's lifetime warranty it would be a great buy.
  6. Having just looked up the difference between 9-9-9-24-2n and 9-9-9-24 I don't think 2n matters enough to care.
  7. thnx i will go with the 8gb :).
  8. At that price you could grab two of those 8GB kits. If you wouldn't use the additional RAM with your usage you could use the extra 8GB as a RAM drive for some of your files, you would just need to remember to copy anything you finish using back to the hard drive to retain any changes. I guarantee that the 8GB of RAM would be a faster storage medium than any SSD.

    Also consider that that is the cheapest high-quality 8GB kit I have ever seen below $40, there probably won't be any other kits at that price, and it probably won't last.
