Upgrading to new RAM, suggestions

 Share

Go to solution Solved by DBells94,

8gb 1600 mhz should be good enough i like corsair ram but its a matter of personal preference

 

Is there a difference in getting 1 or 2 sticks?

 

also yeah 2 sticks say 4gbx2 will work at double channel and give better performance

So I've upgraded all of my PC except for the RAM. There's a lot of 'em and I don't know what's good. There's timings, there's 1333, 1866 and other numbers. Not sure what's worth the money. I've got 4GB ram right now. I'm replacing to 8 gigs, not adding.

If your adding more sticks, I would recommend getting the same sticks or ones with similar timings, voltages and latency.

Doesn't make much of a difference. Just get the cheapest ddr3 kit available.
