I have two Ultra 512MB PC3200
in my current computer. My friend keeps telling me that it is REALLY SLOW ram and that there other companies that would make my computer faster. Now I never really heard of RAM companies (Latency) making a big difference in computer performance.
He listed me a company he says is really good, and gave me a link of two choices. One was 2 sticks of 512
, and the other was 2 sticks of 1GB
, both are dual channel. The (2 x 1GB) has a slower speed, but it has 2GBs.... Anyways I've been thinking of getting the (2 x 1GB).
OK, so here is my question. Would the (2 x 1GB) really give my computer a performance boost? Taking in fact just the speed, not that I have an extra GB. So the speed of 2-3-2-5 compared to my current Ultra ram, would that give me more performance? Would it be worth the money to upgrade to that?
I know for a fact I'm getting a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+
and he also said the new memory would work even faster with that CPU.
RAM - 1GB RAM (2x Ultra)
