I need your guys' opinion since I need to replace my memory. I got a BSOD about something with Physical Memory Dump and then it restarted. And I've also noticed recently I've been getting a red LED light-up next to my RAM slots upon boot. So, I'm planning on replacing my RAM. Well, regardless of the issue - I'd be replacing it anyways for my upgrade.
Anyways, I don't do much gaming, but I want to buy memory that'd suit gaming. I don't play high intensity games like WoW or such. But I do play stuff like Minecraft, RuneScape, League of Legends, etc. I don't have a graphics card yet, but fixing to buy one. But first, I need to get this memory issue sorted before it worsens.
Here's my specs:
- CPU: AMD Athlon II x220 Dual Core 64 Bit (Upgrading to Phenom soon).
- RAM: 8GB Crucial (Looking to upgrade ASAP).
- PSU: 450W Bostec (Upgrading to OCZ ZT Series 650W).
- GPU: Onboard (Upgrading to EVGA GTX 550 Ti Fermi).
- MOBO: ASUS M5A88-M
ram wont affect gaming performance much(at the most, 1 fps, which is negligable) except in the single occasion where the ram is to promote faster vram for an integrated graphic card like Llano and Trinity chips.
