RAM Choices

The third most important feature when building a gaming pc. To put it simple, the more the better! Faster RAM is also defined by its frequency where higher is better.

When looking for RAM consider the model too. Manufacturers often build systems with either unbranded RAM (this translates to cheap Far East junk!) or the bottom end range of a brand; Corsair do basic ram designed for basic budget systems and it is just known as Corsair RAM, but they also do an XMS Range which is far better. We only use Corsair XMS RAM or better here, its regarded the best in the industry and has been for years. Corsair also offer a lifetime warrenty with all of their XMS and Vengeance RAM.

It is also worth noting that we use the correct channel configuration - For example if you choose 8GB we would use 2 x 4GB modules so that it operates in dual channel as it should. Many system builders would use a single, and cheaper, 8GB module which means the RAM would only operate single channel mode which would impact the performance.

How much RAM will depend on the task in hand - for basic tasks such as browsing, word processing and emails 2-4GB is enough. Most PC games require 4GB of RAM, whilst the higher end titles will demand 8GB or 16GB to ensure they run in all their glory. Multimedia editing and CAD workstations will need at least 8GB or RAM, ideally 16GB or 32GB.

DDR4 RAM is now available to Intel Socket 2011-V3 and 1151 systems. AMD Systems still use DDR3 . The type of RAM available to you will depend on the chosen system and what can be found in the upgrade drop down menu - it is not possible to choose incompatible RAM.
