Thread: RAM upgrade




  1. #1

    Lightbulb RAM upgrade

    Hi There

    I've made this PC 1.8 years ago with ur help
    Now I'm back for upgrade suggestions

    My Config:
    Q8200 @ 2.8 Ghz, GA-EP45C-DS3R, Palit HD4850, WD 1TB Black, 2x2GB 5-5-5-15 800(1:1) Mhz Kingston, Vx2235wm-5 (2ms, C.R 1000(typ), DVI),Creative 5.1, Corsair Vx450W

    In at my place (delhi/India) rates are as:-

    RAM
    DDR3 CORSAIR 4GB(1333): Rs. 2000
    DDR2-2GB simmtronics: Rs.1262

    Now Since I already have DDR2 4GB & want to upgrade to 8GB
    Shall I go for DDR2 or 3?
    and what speed?


    HDD:
    additional 1TB WD green (Rs. 2500) or Blue (???) just want to increase capacity.

    Grafix

    Though not actively considering it will Finding & buying another Palit HD4850 will be better or replacing with better card, considering adding another Gx Card will tax PSU?

    Regards

    Just checked the memory support list for my board
    and for some reason it did not have 4GB memory module for DDR3 ?
    but on description page its given that I can go upto 8GB in DDR3.

    So is it that My selection is already made and have to go with ddr2?

    Will the above mentioned simmtronics memory will work good with already installed kingston?

    4GB module may or may not work, they were made after this board so that is why they are not on the list.

    DDR2 would be your best bet for P45, especially since you want to use 8GB.

    Yes, another 4850 would probably be too much for your PSU, but you could upgrade to 5770/5850 probably and still be ok with that PSU.

    I am not sure, but I don't think either of those would be 4850x2, 5870 would but I'm not sure about the others.

    Actually, I think all of that is covered in this thread
    crossfire 4850's vs. single 5850 - Hardware Canucks


    5770 or 5850 should be your next graphic upgrade instead of buying another 4850. 5770 isn't a huge leap in performance, but you do get cooler temps and DX11, 5850 would be a much larger jump in performance

    Here is 4850 vs 5850 posted by a user

    I think you have to buy Dolby programs, there should be the basic version on your CD or motherboard download page, but anything more than that I think you must buy.

    Not sure though, never looked into or used that?

    So you got this all sorted out then? If so great to hear, sorry about the late reply!

    I have onboard sound disabled right now, so I can't listen to the above link, I'll have to do that next time I reboot. Is that link to show me about your issue and so I can test it, or was you just wanting me to watch it for information?

    As for Dolby updates, I am pretty sure the only ones Gigabyte provides will be on your Motherboard Install CD or the driver download page for your board.

    You can ask here though if you would like further info about possible future updates.
