webmal Posted November 21, 2004 Share Posted November 21, 2004 Both AnandTech and Xbitlabs conclude that 1GB RAM does not improve gaming performance in Doom3 which is the most intense game to date. * http://www.anandtech.com/guides/showdoc.aspx?i=2156&p=2 * http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/doom3-cpu_6.html According to Crucial (parent Micron is top 3 biggest memory manufacturer), it's not about how much RAM your system has, RAM speed is much more important when gaming: http://www.crucial.com/pdf/CrucialDoom3.pdf I also noticed that users on 3DMark03 Hall of Fame list are mostly using 512MB RAM. Hence my question: when overclocking, will I get better performance with 2x256MB 3200XL (2-2-2-5) instead of 2x512MB 3200 (3-3-3-8)? Thank you.
