Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I want to buy at least another 2GB of RAM for my computer but hardware isn't really my thing, so I'll need some help picking what to buy. Currently I have two Corsair RAM sticks, 1GB each at 1066MhZ which makes me cry when I boot up Win7 (Product CM2X1024-8500C5D). Ideally I'd got for another two of the exact same thing, but I can't find them locally anymore, and shipping international would probably murder my wallet (in Portugal, shipping from UK stores may actually be okay).
I saw a couple of packs for 2x 2GB but those run faster than then ones I have, 1333mHz or 1600mHz. Would that be a problem? I understand they would run at the speed of the ones I already have, but would the difference in... that sequence of 4 numbers I don't know anything about, something like 8-8-8-24, make them incompatible? Is there a big difference in performance between having 4GB and having 6GB of RAM?
I'm not looking for extreme performance, just something that lets me play a game on Win7 and doesn't give me any problems. Any suggestions?
In case it's relevant here's what I have:
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula II
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E8400
Graphics Card: XFX GeForce 9800GTX+
Power: Corsair TX650W
