7 posts in this topic

ok,

im running win 7 64 bit right now on a amd athlon x2 5000+ processor.

my problem is wich one makes my game run faster (FPS).

1.using win 64 bit what i got now with 3 gb of ddr2(400 mhz) and 2 gb of ram (older modules of 333 mhz)

2.getting win 32 bit and just use the 3 gb (1 stick of 1 gb ddr400 and one of 2 gb .

my card is ati radeon hd 5770

thanx

Um, neither. Use option 1 with only the 3gb module then save up to by additional RAM modules of the same speed and timings. Mixing RAM specs normally hurts performance, even if it increases the total amount of system memory.

nobody makes a 3gb ram modules. 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16gb are all they make.

so either you have 3x1gb sticks or a 1gb and 2gb stick.

I've not noticed much improvements in using faster ram in this game...but thats mainly because CPUS and the M/B chipsets are actually tuned to run at a std speed of ram and faster ram generally gives greatly dimishing returns of performance(it's usually negligable).

going from 1333 to 1600 ddr3 was like 1 or 2 fps difference....I guess because CPU was designed for 1333 ram so faster ram didn't do much.

your overdue for updating your system...thats pretty old and slow now.

I was assuming his 3GB was with 3 1gb modules or a 1 & a 2
