2x256MB DDR400, what kind of boost?

  1. I have :

    Pentium 4 3.0ghz w/HT
    2x256MB Dual-channeled DDR400
    Windows XP
    Geforce FX 5600 Ultra 128MB o/ced
    120 GB 7200 RPM HD

    My question is...if I buy two more 256MB DDR3200 modules, doubling my ram, about how much of a percentage in performance would that boost? I do everything on the computer: music composition, video editing, gaming, etc.
    Thanks ;)

    Buy some...

    Hi, :wave:

    512mb of ram is quite adequate for older games, but i'd recommend at least 1gb for new games like doom3 and hl2.

    I myself had 512mb, and purchased another 1gb and it made all the difference with games etc. etc.


    My specs..
    ASUS P5GDC DELUXE
    P4 540 3.2 PRESCOTT (800FSB)
    RADEON X800 XT PCI EXPRESS
    1536MB CRUCIAL TECH RAM (DUAL CHANNEL INTERLEAVED)
    460W PSU
