What's better: 4 x 4gb 1600mhz or 2x4gb 2400mhz?
Jan 6, 2013, 8:55 PM
Hi, i'm a power user. The kind that opens billions of websites while is playing a heavy game and listening to stuff on Winamp at the same time. I'd like to buy some RAM for a new PC.
So I'm wondering which should be better:
4 x 4gb 1600mhz
2 x 4gb 2400mhz?
My motherboard shall be an ASUS P8H77-M, and I'm having an Intel Core i5-3570 3.40 6Mb LGA 1155 as processor.
