Best RAM complement for Phenom IIx4

December 23, 2009 at 10:36:35
Specs: Windows XP
I am currently using a AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
and looking to complement this processor's
specs with RAM that will keep up to speed.
Using Windows 7 64bit, looking for anyone that
has experience with this processor and has a
good recommendation. Appreciate it.

DDR3 1333mhz will be good enough.

I realize I'm probably choking my machine to death at some
key points, so I'm really trying to build around some core
parts. I have a Nvidia 9800gx2 512mb, yes that hothead of a
card, and the processor described. I'm really trying to rid my
machine (or at least reduce) the choke points I know my
motherboard and my ram are creating (running on DDR2 1066
currently) on the overall performance of my machine.

DDR3 1333 does sound like a logical progression to me, but
I'm just not familiar enough to be able to make the decision
solely on my own personal knowledge. I've had numerous
problems with mobo/ram/processor combinations that in all
ways *should* work, but simply find a way that they shouldn't
work. I'm looking for a straight forward hit that'll make a newly
acquired mobo/ram combination will cut out some of the
choking while working with hopefully minimal effort.

Again, I appreciate anyone's help on shining light on some of
my future endeavors. :)

The current ram you are running isn't choking your processor at all. The current ram you have in there is fine.

What are the symptoms that you are seeing that you think your machine has a choke point? I will tell you from experience that most choke points have to do with HD speed. RAM is many times faster than HDs, and if your system is accessing the HD to do anything (which is most of the time) that is your choke point. If you are running on Windows 7, what does it evaluate as the slowest of your performance points?
