Hey guys. I want to know if i add 2 GB ram to my computer it will increase my fps in game. Like in counter strike source; While playing de_dust2 i get with around 100 to 180 fps..
Processer : AMD Athlon II X2 240 2.81GHz
RAM : 2GB
Win 7 32bits
Graphic Card : ATI 5770 HD 1GB..
I played Crysys in High video quality and i didnt slowed down the game. COD MW2 i play it online in full graphs and i play it well! . But there are games like. GTA IV. i have to play it in MEDIUm settings. I cant even add shadows to the game becouse it will slow down the gameplay.. SO i want to know that if i add 2gb ram ill can play GTA IV in FULL SPECS [ HIGH QUALITY with shadows and all.. ]and if it will increase my fps in css. Sorry for my bad english.
If you're going to have 4GB ram (+1GB Gfx RAM) you will need Win 64bit to use it all. Meaning a re-install.
Windows 7 generally uses a lot of ram, so more will always help.
Depending on how many slots your mother board has, and how many are in use, an extra 1GB may be easiest, as it can be used with Win 32bit (3GB + 1GB Gfx = 4GB limit). Most M'boards also have "Dual" channels, some even "Tripple" channels, which would greatly assist your RAM speed. If your M'board is triple capable, then a third stick would be fantastic. The new RAM stick would need to be identical as possible (Ie the same stick) as the other ones. (EG if you have 3+ slots, and 2x1GB RAM cards, then an additional 1GB RAM stick will be good.)
EDIT: I just get it. The two slots Yeallow are the CHANNEL 1 and the other two, the second channel. Im wondering why the hell i have one single stick. And not 2x 1GB RAM . . Can i have diferent sticks in the diferents channels ? Like 2 GSKILLS ( THE BLUE ones ) in the channel 1, and in the second one two GSKILLS RIPjaws ) iM Not pretendig to buy ripjaws. But i want to understand this xD .
The two yellow are dual, the two orange are dual. You should fill both yellow, or both orange, or all 4, to get the best performance (only). ....Ofc with the same RAM sticks for each pair.
You have one stick because people who sell computers don't care about performance, only profit
You can have 2x1GB and 2x2GB in each colour (i believe), but its less advised. Best to go all out the same.
If the motherboard has two pairs of differently colored DIMM sockets (the colors indicate which bank they belong to, bank 0 or bank 1), then one can place a matched pair of memory modules in bank 0, but a different-capacity pair of modules in bank 1, as long as they are of the same speed.
Speed here is FSB, front side bus, (EG 1033MHz or w/e).
So get yourself a 2GB, of the same model if possible, and slot it in the same colour as the other one.
currently you will only be able to use 3GB of it (as the GFx card takes up 1GB of the 4GB limit), but its still better than 2GB. To use all 4GB, install win 64bit.
Hehe. I get it all. Thank you so much. Ive been seaching ofr Differences between win 7 64 bit and 32. And i found out this :
What is the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows?
The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer's processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system.
So yeah, My CPU is compatible with the 64bits so.. Yeah, Ill install the 64bits . So ill be able to use all the RAM (4gb) ; And it may be more efficient then the 32bits. So yeah, Thank you for your time (:
Just a last question. What version should be better to play good games. Talking about Crysis 2. Gta iv. Hardcore games.
