I have an older computer that I want to upgrade. Currently it can run Left 4 Dead 2, but it's a little jittery.
It has 1G x 2 of ddr2 800 ram. I have some extra 512 x 2 ddr2 533 ram.
So my question will it be worth it to use the 533 ram to upgrade to 3G of ram but possibly drop the data rate to 533? Or would it better to stick with 2G of ram but running at it's full 800 data rate?
Extra info: I'm also looking at upgrading the CPU and Graphics card, but it would be nice to get a performance boost for free with my extra ddr2.
mcp61pm-am, a generic OEM board, nothing special, 4 dimms for ddr2 and one pci-express slot
Athlon 64 X2 3800+, Not terrible for when it was bought.
NVidia nForce 430, integrated graphics card. Not really meant for games.
