Solved 1333Mhz upgrade to 1600 or higher Tags: Memory Gaming RAM Last response: December 12, 2012 1:23 PM in Memory Share xaephod December 12, 2012 4:39:05 AM For a gaming rig, will you see any improvement in gaming if you upgrade from 1333mhz ram to a quality 1600mhz or higher? Also, was considering moving from 8 gigs to 16 gigs. P8P67-M PRO with an I5-2500K (Would like to OC a little) AMD 7970 1000watt PSU. Playing games like Guildwars 2 and Planetside 2 (lots of 2's!). Looking for the best play possible. Think the cpu is good enough and I know the GPU is high end. So worth upgrading the ram?

As for the speed, very little if no improvement in games. xaephod December 12, 2012 1:23:50 PM Best answer selected by xaephod. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
