This might be a dead-end question, but here: I have a EVGA 780i SLI. A rather old motherboard, but it's done me good for many, many years now I can't complain.
At some point, we've obviously passed the idea of 4 GB of RAM being sufficient for high-end gaming. This being an old motherboard, I'm wondering if I can derive any benefit from a memory upgrade. RAM's always been an elusive topic for me, but according to CPU-Z I'm running 4 identical modules of old DD2 400 MhZ (PC2-6400) from Corsair, which, if I remember my PC to English, are 4 modules of DDR2 800. I have a Intel Core2Quad Q9650 (3 GHz), and despite having a lot of power to spare, I've long since given up on trying to overclock (the motherboard BIOS doesn't like it).
I know the 780i only supports the DDR, but that's about it. Would it be possible for me to pick up 4 2GB RAM modules? Would it be even worthwhile at this time? Should I attempt to get something faster than DD2 800 (DDR2 1066?).
