Ram Upgrade / Pls help.

Recommended Posts

So I was thinking to upgrade my RAM memory for my Alienware Mx17 R4 and I saw a lot of memories with over 1600 mhz DDR 3 that i curently have (2x 4Gb Micron 1600mhz ddr3).

My question is that will i have an improvment in performance if i Upgrade to 1866 mhz ddr3 or to 2133 mhz ddr3, and if will work on this laptop.

it depends on what your computer activities are.

if you do only some text edition, it will be a bad idea

You will not gain that's much, by that i mean that you will not notice improvements without an appropriate tool. Except if you are an hardcore gamer who search for these little fps gain :3

yes. i am a hardcore gamer... and for the moment i think i will leave the ram upgrade and focus in upgrading my gtx770m to an 780 or 880 gpu.

But anyway thx for the reply.

instead of 4x4 u should get 2x8, because 4ram always make the system more unstable and your commandrate will go from 1t to 2t

so id always recommend only 2x ram over 4x
