Adding more RAM may boost performance if your programs need it, but switching from DDR2 to DDR3 will not. A better option to increase performance on a budget would be to overclock your CPU. Your system should be capable of running at 3GHz quite easily, which is a significant boost in performance. | Report abuse Related ressources Lower profile RAM, same or better performance - Forum What CPU performance is possible with a non "K" sandy bridge? - Forum HD 7700 = Same performance ? - Forum Better gaming performance ? - Forum 7850 should I be getting better performance ? - Forum Ask the community Publish bob4gig August 15, 2012 10:22:20 PM Best answer selected by bob4gig. | Report abuse bob4gig August 15, 2012 10:22:47 PM Thanks for the replies guys.. | Report abuse nikorr CPUs Authority Motherboard Master August 15, 2012 10:35:16 PM This topic has been closed by Nikorr | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Motherboards>Is better performance with same CPU possible> Related ressources: ForumGraphics Card Performance same as old?
