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. bob4gig August 15, 2012 10:22:20 PM Best answer selected by bob4gig. bob4gig August 15, 2012 10:22:47 PM Thanks for the replies guys.. nikorr a b Ĉ ASUS a b à CPUs a c 328 V Motherboard August 15, 2012 10:35:16 PM This topic has been closed by Nikorr Can't find your answer ?
