Hello guys! I'm here to ask you something! I have a custom pc, my specs are
Phenom 955T Black edition 8mb Cache
Kfa2 GeForce GTS450 Oc Edition
4Gb ram (Kingston)
And I like to record gameplays, and I've tried so many softwares, like Fraps,Bandicam and DxTory!
But the issue is, I get lag, my fps keep tropping, and I was thinking of, if I upgrade my Ram from 4gb to 8gb will I increase my frame rate?
My gpu is good! I can play Bf3 maxed out with 45fps, no problem! And my cpu is awesome!
Oh great! I will save some money to get something good then! SO upgrading my ram from 4gb to 8gb will increase my fps by atleast 10%-15%?
Will i be able to play mw2 1280x720 High, but all the particles off, except Specular Maps with a playable frame rate? Like 50fps?
The additional memory will help your game/apps work more efficiently and not have to use as much virtual memory (when the HDD is used to augment your main memory, a.k.a. RAM). So a performance increase of 10 to 15 percent, when running mutliple apps, is possible.
For your MW2 settings, at the resolution/settings you are using, you are actually stressing your CPU more than your GPU. Adding the additional memory won't speed up your GPU, but will allow the CPU to operate better.
You should game at the native resolution of the display. Given your system, your frame rates should still be okay at the higher setting. It will look better and your GPU will carry more of the processing load.
Also, make sure the memory you install is matched (sold in pairs). Mixing memory brands can cause the system to work in single channel vice dual channel mode. While the performance difference isn't all that huge, there is no use adding memory to take (an even slight) a performance hit.
