My PC has following hardware right now:
- Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4 MHz
- ASUS P5B-VM Motherboard
- 1 GB DDR 2 533 MHz RAM
- 2 GB DDR 2 800 MHz RAM
- 7200 RPM SATA 2 HDD
- NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250 1 GB
My motherboard supports maximum of DDR 2 800 MHz RAM. Since one of my RAM is rated 533 MHz, the motherboard adjusted both RAM speed to 533. (I bought 2 GB RAM 2 years after I bought the whole system.)
I use Windows 7 Ultimate. The system rating index for my PC is 5.5, which is the slowest one among all parameters. This 5.5 rating comes from RAM speed.
I want to know, if I replace the 533 RAM with 800 RAM, will the overall performance increase be noticeable? For your information, my PC is used for gaming, graphics design (AutoCAD, Sketchup, Corel Draw etc), video editing (Corel VideoStudio Pro X3) and conversion (VideoStudio & Handbrake), and other general purpose (internet, listnening music, watching movies etc.).
It is not possible for me to benchmark the upgrade until I buy the RAM. So I'd like to know in advance if the upgrade will be noticeable and then I can buy it.
Thanks in advance.
