After about a year and a half I'm pretty sure one of my ram sticks died because when i stream video and play games at the same time I stutter like crazy. But yeah I need some new ram and i was wondering if frequency maters when it comes to performance? i plan on getting 8 gigs of ddr3 1330 frequency and was wondering if that would bottle neck me in gaming should I gow ith 1600 frquency instead? thanks.
Well you need to do a research on ram , basically you have to avoid compatibility issue .
1] check whether you mobo supports 1600 ram ?
2] voltage of ram [ some have 1.5 v some have 1.65 volt ]
3] is it dual channel or what ,
4] go to motherboard official page and check the compatibility of ram with mobo.
send an email to ram manufacturer and ask them about compatibility issue [ i have sent one , waiting for reply ]
ask more specific question and mention everything .
remember you have to avoid compatibility issues , if you dont your pc will hand , will give you constant reboots and so on
