Would more ram get me better FPS?

#1LokiHero2Posted 8/6/2013 11:39:16 AM
I have 4 gigs of ram, if I upgraded to say 8 gigs, would I get better fps in a game such as Rift? Or would it not make a difference?

No. It would have a negligible impact on frames per second.

CPU and GPU are the backbone of good FPS.

More RAM would get you less stuttering and less crashing, but it wouldn't do much for FPS.

Not unless you were running a lot of applications, and even then the difference would be small.

AMD Phenom II X4 965
4.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3
AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB
1920x1080p resolution

Also would more ram help at all if I ever decided to hook up a second monitor and run something like a youtube video on as I play Rift on my main monitor?

thanks.

With those specs, change your in-game resolution to 720 and enjoy all those extra frames!

Have you looked to see how much RAM you're using when you're playing Rift?

You might get more FPS stability in some games with more RAM. The number of games that truly benefit are limited though. BF3 and Planetside 2 are some examples....idk what else.
