This a good Upgrade

Changing OCZ Gold 12 GB (1333 MHZ) to this:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7025816&CatId=3473 (YES No i 16gb is "too" much)

And my GIGABYTE ex58-ud5 Motherboard to this:
http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6337561&CatId=4070

Will I notice any differences?

  1. You're changing the parts that matter the least, imo. Unless you're having troubles keeping RAM usage under 12GB, you should be fine with 12GB. I don't have any experience with 1600MHZ but many people on forums say there isn't much of a noticeable difference.

    If you're needing the features in that motherboard, go for it, but if you are upgrading JUST for the performance increase (if any) I don't think it's worth it.

    Maybe in the benchmarks. Get an SSD and u will see difference for sure.

    Than only new CPU will speed up things.
  3. Oh, I see that u have the SSD already.

    So, only CPU will make a difference that u can actually notice.
  4. Well my CPU is overclocked to 3.8, so? Should i just stay at what i have.
  5. IMHO, yes. There is no speed up on mobo and RAM exchange.

    I would not do it. Its just getting more of the same.
  6. Check this compars... And u decide if it is needed to change.
