Closed Is 4GB RAM enough to optimize a Pentium D 945? Tags: CPUs Pentium RAM DDR3 Last response: December 25, 2012 1:31 PM in CPUs Share trailbreaker December 16, 2012 2:28:51 PM Hi! These are my PC's specs, • Pentium D 945 (3.4GHz) CPU • Gigabyte G41M - Combo motherboard (2x DDR3 capable DIMM's) • _________RAM • 1GB XFX GeForce 9500GT (DDR3) VGA • 550W PowerLogic Magnum Pro PSU Imagine that currently I have no RAM. So, I have 2 options, 01) 2x 2GB G.Skill DDR3-1333MHz (F3-10600CL9S-2GBNT) 02) 2x 4GB G.Skill DDR3-1333MHz (F3-10600CL9S-4GBNT) Since I'm with an old Pentium D, I know that I cant play the latest games like NFS RUN, BF3 etc. So, to play some new (but not latest) games with maximum FPS possible with this CPU, is it enough to use 4GB (option 01) RAM? or... is it worth enough/useful to get extra +4GB (option 02)? NOTE - I often use this PC for Gaming, but not those high end software like Illustrator etc. More about : 4gb ram optimize pentium 945 trailbreaker December 16, 2012 4:18:40 PM You just insulted my sentimental processor which I got a as a gift!
