soo now it's not that it doesn't provide the performance...it's that extra performance for a few more dollars is bad?Of course, you are telling me that you missed a headshot in GTA 5 because you got 50 fps with 1600 Mhz memory ? oh the horror, lets throw money and upgrade to 2133Mhz on an old platform so that you get a constant and solid 60 fps. Or should we talk about nekkers getting you in Witcher 3 because well you had only 60 fps, what about aliens in Crysis 3, do a 360 no scope with 95 fps, impossibiru! lets upgrade to 2133Mhz so that you get 98 fps.
Is that a light a see at the end of the tunnel ??? or money wasted on an old platform ?
say you have 2x4GB and want to go to 16GB without mixing sets.
16GB (2x 8GB) ddr3 1600 kit? 90$
16GB (2x 8GB) ddr3 2133 kit? 95$
16GB (2x 8GB) ddr3 2400 kit? 99$
damn that 5-10$ is KILLER.
Shoot even if you weren't upgrading your ram's capacity you're talking less than 100$ to add 10-12% more performance overall in gaming.
how many people went from a 970 to a 980 to get 10% more performance in games? You can guarantee they spend more than 100$ even after selling the 970.
