Hello friends Still a happy i5 2500k user here, not giving up anytime soon So i decided i will tweak my sistem a bit and never thought much about ram, mainly just did cpu overclocking. But look at this video: Ram speed does matter it seems ! What i would like to say upfront is that games are not my main target, i usualy play older games. My main target is windows enviroment - i want it as snappy as possible: internet browsing, youtube, multiple tabs, winrar and other extracting, etc. I only have 4gb 1300Mhz ram right now. I figured i need at least 8gb to be happy, i am near the limit. So i need you to help me decide the way to upgrade it: 1) buy another 4gb stick - means i get around very cheap but 4gb stick will lose value faster than 8gb, also i am limited to 1300Mhz, speed of my existing stick 2) buy 8gb stick and sell 4gb stick - 8gb stick will keep its value longer and also i can buy higher speed than 1300Mhz. But, BUT, how will speed compare between 2x4gb vs 1x8gb ? Single vs dual channel ? I have asus p8z77-v lx motherboard, its supposed to support up to 2400Mhz memory (OC) bonus questions: 1) are ram timings important at windows snappiness or should i just go for frequency overclock ? No matter what speed of ram i will buy, i will overclock it further.
