Worth upgrading to 16gb?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone, 

So in my build, I have only 8gb of ram, when I'm playing fortnite or csgo any game, discord starts to stutter and I can't hear my friends, like it buffers and goes all weird. Should I upgrade to 16gb just for this?

Well discord & CSGO & Fortnites don't even use much more than 6GB together so no

But windows uses 2gb so his RAM is pretty full.

6GB including Windows, there is no way to monitor Ram usage without Windows usage whilst in a game.

8gb isn't really enough in 2019, I think I'm gonna upgrade to 16gb. Plus it's not too much out the bank. Cheers guys.

Close them, it only lowers performance anyway, do you need al this open or is it just a lazy habit?

Go and spend some money on more RAM if it is needed, if not just prioritize what you do correctly.

If you have the money, I don't see why not.

 

I feel like Discord stuttering would be more down to your internet connection than RAM usage, because I've experienced the same and it was my Wi-Fi connection.

 

Upgrading to 16GB most likely won't solve that, but if you're having any framerate issues or your PC is slower than you'd expected, then by all means upgrade.

My Internet connection if perfectly fine. I get 100mbps +.
