Anything less than 64GB is trash.


Anything less than 256GB and you might as well just buy an Xbone.


Forget SSD's, s'all about dem ramdisks, son.


Do they make PCI-E RAM yet? If not, how can I start selling that?

I've never used a PCI-E SSD. Are they actually faster than RAM disk?

I never have either. Nor have I used a RAM disk. I only have 16GB. I'm a fraud :<

no, they are not faster than RAM disks

I have 16 GB also, but I don't think I've ever used more than 6. I'd like to try some virtual machine and RAM disk stuff with it, just to do it, but I don't know what use I'd put a RAM disk to.

256MB SSD



I would get a bigger ssd first. That must be one of those ssd's from the 90's.

They actually make SSDs that plug into a ram slot. They're called Ultra DIMMs, or UDimm for short. I think they require a mobo with ECC support though.

I ramdisk with my 16gb all the time, some ~11gb games work nicely.

16gb and you need more?? your ram had nothing to do with your sluggish performance unless you were encoding video whole playing a game while having 20 tabs open while watching youtube while watching japanese American and Brazilian porn all at once. Even then i doubt you'll need more ram.

I still have 4gb and I barely encounter any sluggishness.


4 tabs, not 20, and no porn open at the time. But I do encode and capture the game at times with music playing (many times on youtube) with my facebook, email, and a few other pages open. Never had a problem.

Anyways, right after I got home after work, the day of creating this topic, I said "bleep it" and reformatted the computer. It was almost that time anyways.... As soon as I finish downloading and updating all my Steam games, I will try and recreate the problem.

The funny thing is, what ever game I was playing at the time, Injustice I think, I cranked down the settings, and I still had the problem. Crossing my fingers that I fixed it with the format.
