System specs:

Asus P6TD Deluxe mobo
OCZ ddr3 ram (6gb)
i7 960 3.2Ghz
coolermaster V8
Corsair 850w power supply
Radeon 5870


I have started to get into video editing, and my computer works...but I like fast, SO either I look at upgrading my whole system or putting a crap-ton more ram in. I'm leaning twards the ram.

Here is what I currently have:

would this be better?

I would like more ram, but if possible without OC, I would like to make my ram faster also...

Thanks for the help.

Well since your not going to OC your ram, its better to get the Ram with the Ram speed area like you want, 24 gigs?, thats a bit much. save some money and get a 16 gig kit. Windows probably won't use 16 gigs for a long time...

I'm not worried about windows using 24gb ram, more interested in my adobe after effects using that much. rendering HD video uses ALOT.

And I have windows 7 ultimate which allows up to 24gb ram.

But from everything I have read, the Cas latency is the speed, I currently have 8. if I find something with 9 does that mean its going to be a ton slower? or will more cards make it faster then i currently have? these are the questions I have.

Thanks though.

It's twice as much and faster for $100.



Since I am trying to learn here, how is that faster then the other ram I posted? it still has a latency of 9?


(and as far as OC goes...its not like I dont' want to.. I am just not sure if I trust myself to go into the bios and start changing stuff around)

Hi there Dewm,

I edit videos too, get more RAM, that will help, but what is your OS? If u have home premium, u can use only 16GB anyway.

But get 24GB and create 8GB RAMdisc and use that. It is cheap, but who knows if this will not spike the prices a bit.

Than u can use the AI suite, to get some decent OC with few clicks of the mouse. It is easy.

And if u need any help to do it, ask here, everyone does it : )

Latency on RAM is not an absolute measurement, but is instead a number of clock cycles.

So if I understand correctly, you would recommend ordering this
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220543

then OC it to 2000?

Either that or keep it at 1600 or so and undertime it.

EDIT: My roomie has a 920 and runs his RAM that's rated for 2000 MHz CL9 @ 1523 (or something weird like that) CL6. I'm no expert on video editing/rendering, but I hear it's very read/write intensive.
