Talking Just upgraded my RAM!

Hi Guys,

I'm amazed at what a difference decent RAM makes, I used to have 'Team Group' Value ram, 2.5-4-4-8, DDR400, and it really wasn't good. Faulty in fact. I recently bought some Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 DDR400, with sexy silver heatspreaders, and it makes such a difference, no lags, or random BSOD's. It also looks friggin cool!

Don't know what the point of this was, just wanted to comment, to anyone that has 'value' ram, and thought it was fine, and there wasn't much point in changing, it makes a big difference to buy some fast RAM.

Charlie -

Yeah, its nice to be around others, as its a bit of a lost art in the UK, probably because of the prices....!
