Hey, I'm looking at doing a RAM upgrade for my pc (currently 2x1GB DDR2 800Mhz Kingston valueRAM)
and I'm looking to replace it with something a bit less slow. Note this is for a GA-EP45-DS3R mobo with a core 2 duo @ 3.2GHz.
Firstly, are any of the below choices a good choice for my PC:
The clearly cheaper
KTL-TCM58B/2G (x2 = 4GB) 1333MHz
KHX8500D2K2/4G 1066MHz - although i saw some forum posts that said voltages may be an issue?
Additionally I'm not very experienced when it comes to RAM, are there any other (sub $100 4GB or 8GB packs with timings over 1066MHz?)
Secondly, but less important, will a jump up to 1066MHz provide much better O/C or not?
Thanks in advanced!
Yes, you will see the performance jump when you upgrade it.
Agree with abekl, that is the ram you need
