For the last couple of weeks I have been reading up about Ramdisk, and with mixed reviews. I was going to purchase extra memory to have 8gb ramdisk, but with my ssd, I wasn't sure if it would be beneficial. I do the occasional Adobe Premiere, but mostly gamiing.
Here are the specs that are relevant:
AMD Phenom x4 @4ghz
Agility 3 240gb on Sata III
8gb (2x4) Corsair XMS3 1600
The reason I have to mix memory is bcuz Newegg is currently only has 1 ram stick available for the memory that I bought, so I have to mix, but it's with another Corsair batch.
I know there is a lot of debate about the number of write/rewrites an SSD can handle, and it's much better than when they first started out, but I really want to prolong the longevity of my SSD.
Watching HD movies and gaming can be a couple gb worth of write and rewrites.
Like I said, I mostly game, movies, the occasional adobe, and the occasional audio convert. I was reading how I could have my browsers temp be in a ram disk. Nobody has money to burn or throw away, but I want to make sure it would be a good investment.
