Basically I'm redoing some things in my PC such as good cable management dust filters and stuff. Then is struck me that my RAM needs upgrading as I only have 4GB and it's just cheap RAM.
My brother bought 2x2gb ram sticks which were cheap without asking me to do some research over a year ago. Until today I've been using them but now I want to upgrade as said earlier.
My specs are:
Power Supply: 650W
HDDs: 2TB Spintpoint and a 250gb seagate(old one that needs replacing)
GFX: Gigabyte 5870
I've been reading around and it seems as though G.Skill Ripjaws X is a popular selection. At my local computer store 2x8GB costs 175AUD where as an 1x8GB costs 79AUD so it's cheaper to get 2x(1x8GB) but the thing is they look like the exact same model (with the model number) . Here are the rams I am talking about(had to upload :
Only difference I see is that one is CL9 and one is CL10 but they have the exact same specs. So can anyone clarify as to why there is a big price difference if you go for the 2x8gb one rather than just getting 2 of the 8gb sticks separately.
