Default Re: Another RAM Problem

To run along side your HyperX modules I would suggest either one of these:

Patriot EP 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz (2x2048MB)

GeIL Black Dragon 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

They match the timings of your Kingston memory.

Couldn't I just change the timings myself? With the 2 I chose, I could always order another pair down the line. I'm also going to make a media center PC soon. I could use my current RAM for that. Or, I am going to try to sell it.

You could, but there's no guarantees that it will run at the faster timings. You may need to find a happy medium that all four sticks of memory will run at.

How much of a difference will I see between 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15 timings?

Truthfully, probably none. You'll see a small difference in performance benches, but I doubt you'll notice any difference in real world use.

I'm going to order this kit. With the price, I can afford 8GB of the same type. That way I shouldn't have any problems.

Patriot makes good memory, that should be fine. But damn, 8GB?

Video editing and a lot of gaming. I could use a boost. Especially at such cheap prices.

That makes sense. I've never edited any huge videos before, I'm guessing it can get pretty RAM heavy.

It's just a great price for that RAM. They both have gotten great reviews. I just don't know who to go for. What do you guys think?
