Hi. I want to buy Intel i7-3770k with Intel DZ77SL-50k mobo. Here comes the part in which I need advice.
whether I buy 4GB ram with 1600 bus or 8GB with 1333 bus. which is better. (Manufacturer: CORSAIR)
Performance-wise, the difference between 1066 and 2133 is only 1-3% in most real-world benchmarks. On the other hand, the multitasking smoothness between 4GB and 8GB can be a major leap depending on what you usually run.
With my own usage pattern, 4GB would cause so much swapping that my computer would be effectively unusable no matter how fast it might be so the 8GB slower RAM would be a no-brainer.
