RAM upgrade
 
so i'm thinking about upgrading my ram, currently i have a Gigabyte P35-DS3L motherboard and 2GB of DDR2-800 Corsair ram And im thinking about upgrading to 2GB of Corsair Dominator Ram

1) would this be a smart upgrade
2) does the ram work with my motherboard
3) what major improvements would i see

Thanks :canadianwave:

By upgrading, are you going to keep the current 2GB set? If not, then there's no point in upgrading.

You can always sell your current 2GB and get a 4GB kit instead.

1. no.
2. yes.
3. none.

Sell the 2Gb, buy 4 Gb. Or keep the 2 Gb as a back-up. That's it.

Im just going to sell all my extra parts right now and save up for a Nehalm upgrade and new the x58, ddr3 memory and the Nehalm..


Does that sound smarter?

No because Nehalem will be as crazy as hell when it's released. Wait at least like a year or so for the prices to drop to make the upgrade/new computer worthwhile. That's my opinion though.

buy 4gb of Mushkin Ascents or Redline and sell your Corsair or use it for a backup system. Going from 2GB to 2GB will yield at most a possible better overclock if you're even doing that. Might as well get something bigger and badder (and more useful) - Cheers!

i would also consider the G.Skill ram kits as they are awesome for the price to performance ratio.
