Killa, you need to upgrade that RAM bro.
All in good time. It's not really holding me back at all. GPU is the next item on my list but if I can get some 1600 ram for cheap I will.

Forget that shit homie, it's old. 2133MHz for Intel is a good starting point. Those IMC's are great at handling high clocks.

I'll look into it. All depends on what I can afford.

Cheap is $50 or under for 8gb. I just spent $400 on a cpu and mobo, I'm not in a rush to spend more on ram. I'm willing to spend more on faster ram, but not right now.
Also, I only need 8gb, 16 max. 24 for me is overkill, I don't do anything that requires 16gb, much less 24.

Stick it up on eBay but you'll need more specs than that. "24GB" doesn't say much :)

Every source I see says that faster ram(2133 vs 1333)  is pretty much unnoticeable when it comes to real world performance in games and applications. What say you Spanky?

GPU's are expensive, good RAM isn't. If I had the $$ for a GPU, I'd get some sweet RAM too. Although, mine's good enough for my AMD chip, if I went to Intel, I'd probably go for 2400MHz or something.

I would be surprised that in gaming it wouldn't be noticeable. Things are swapped in and out of RAM constantly in games, it should help out. Also, if you happen to get a Samsung SSD, you can use RAPID which will use your RAM to boost read/write speeds. I've seen over 1GB/s read speeds on 2133MHz memory and a Samsung 840 EVO.

I've yet to see someone say jumping from 1333 to 2133 was noticeable. I know there's a big speed difference, but the consensus seems to be that it's not noticeable in gaming performance. Ram might be cheaper than a GPU, but by not getting new ram I then have $100 more to spend on a GPU. I don't plan on getting an SSD anytime soon.

You see that Killaman, Bart has better memory and hard drive than you. Are you going to lie down and take that insult from him?

Well, I would realy recommend him to take an SSD, once you have one, you never want to have a pc without it. The boot time after bios is shortened so freaking much, I can just click the power button, sit down and I'm ready to go.
