I am curious if RAM (specifically 2 different brands ) can bottleneck CPU and GPU performance while gaming ? I have two separate brands currently and they seem to have a low DRAM frequency. I have an AMD FX 6200 and and OC HD 7850 (1GB) which I dont think hinder one another but I think the RAM might be causing me fits.......anyone out there help me out ?

Can you post which RAMs you are using and their specs. Also the motherboard specs will help to answer.
