I see endless reports on RAM, one version is better than the other, one overclocks more than the other, etc, etc. I would like to know this:
Is there really going to be any real NOTICABLE difference between most RAM of any given type if the system running it is left alone, stock? Example:
In DDR 400 ram, what are the chances that i would notice anything by purchasing a $280 set of corsair xms or just buying the same in value ram?
My thoughts are that there would be little to no difference, unless you are one of those people who love to compare apples to apples. I know there are people who seemingly spend their entire lives running benchmark programs just to prove they can do more with what they bought than the average person. I just wanted to know, because its hard to get any real-world advice or help on choosing memory because everyone almost automatically assumes you want to overclock it, and hook it up to a flux capacitor and tap into the damn local nuclear power plant and.........do what with it?
maybe I just dont understand. I dont want to push things to the edge, I just want everything to work well and as fast and normal as I can get it without being retarded.
I think of it as comparing bullets from a gun. Without a chronograph, you would never know which bullet was faster.
Sorry if it sounds like I am bitching. I just thought I would post here since this forum has the most knowledgable folks on it that may be able to answer.
