For HD Movies, no. Even with 4GB Full HD movies are going good. For that you need just good cpu,ram is not so important for that.

For games, yes. Games will start faster also.

Depends on the games your playing and the movies, if your changing formats it will help.

You will be able to open more apps at the same time and more tabs on your browser, copy/paste more data at one time, etc.

You will just have to try it and see if you notice any differences.

I play Rage,crysis,Bioshock,now Skyrim in full AA,1080p always everything in max settings.

HD movies in 1080p.

Ok then, HyperX +Value Ram =8GB at CL 5-5-5-15 Voltage 1.8

I will run the benchmark before and after the addition.

I finished combine and testing.

I posted some benchmarks.

In the first benchmark i have installed only the HyperX 5-5-5-15 1.8V =4GB

In the second benchmark and winsat mem i have installed HyperX with ValueRam 5-5-5-15 1.8V =8GB


Well now guys i need your advice. When is better\faster with or without the ValueRam? Or the different is not noticeable?

The Kingston Value Ram is being detected as DDR2-333(666)MHz not as DDR2-800 as the HyperX.

So it is running all 4 ram sticks at 666. So you get lower scores.

Pull out the Value Ram and just use the 2 sticks of HyperX only and it will work at 800MHz as in your first Maxx Snip.

This is best. 2 x HyperX

Ok the final tests.

First only HyperX. 5-5-5-15 V1.8 =4GB

Second HyperX+ValueRam 5-5-5-15 V1.8 =8GB

And the final winsat mem with HyperX+ValueRam 5-5-5-15 V1.8

And again the same newbie question. When is better\faster with or without the ValueRam? Or the different is not noticeable? If i dont have any decrease maybe is better to stick with 8GB?

Yeah Saviour!!!!!!!! Excellent job!

Leave all 4 sticks of ram in the PC!!!!!!

It is not a big difference on benchmarks but will be useful with some applications.

You have it so make use of it.
That is what I would do.
