|Ok, lets clear some things up here...i do not doubt anything you guys are saying, and i would have done it years ago if i had the money. You have to realize that i am slowly building up my pc to what i want, and most of these parts i have gotten just for super cheap, not the ideal parts (which i will get eventually). And sorry for being rude, but its kinda annoying when someody online tells you "i dont like what your doing here" and "you should do this instead" even if the underlying meaning is to help...undehill could've came across a little differently on that.|
I know i can flip my psu upside down, but then the power cable wont be long enough to reach the pins on my mobo (which was why i bought this one in the first place, because people in the comments were saying the cables were pretty long).
I know i can get a 120gb ssd which would be faster, but i got these two ssds for $25 from a friend. The thing about the hard drives is, i pulled them from another computer and i have 750gb's of games, so i cant exactly install all of that on one of my ssds. I put them in raid and i haven't had any problems with it, so i shall leave it that way.
My ocz cards have gone bad, as soon as i put them in the computer i get a bios errer asking me to switch to default settings (which i have tried and such)...i have gone through that mess already. Very simply, two of my cards are fried and my computer is running super slow...im running on one stick of 2gb ocz at 1333mhz.
the reason i bought this certain RAM was because it was on sale for $10 cheaper than the 1600mhz RAM i was going to buy...faster RAM on sale for cheaper? i took it.
as for the limitations of the cpu/mobo...from what i have seen online, most gigabyte boards have this limitation. why? i dont know, i am simply restating what i have seen and asking what would be the best route here. I dont know much about RAM and i bought the G.Skill on a whim to get my computer running back up to speed. Sorry to all that i havent made the best buying decisions, but eventually they will all be worked out...i will have this computer for years and years, plenty of time to fix all the quirks i have with it. But all i want to do right now, is learn about how i should set up my ram...which so far has come down to just sticking them in slots 1 and 3, and trying different things from there.
The reason I'meven asking this question is the fact that many of things that i have seen online is that dual channel doesn't even really do much...theoretically yes, it should double my speed but from actual benchmarks, it only shows up increasing performance by about 1%, if at all. Some people have said that you should run in single channel at faster speed... But Maybe I'm looking at this wrong, and that's why i am here, to gain opinions on which would be better.
Thank you all for you opinions, i hope i have addressed them all.(:
And sorry for the rudeness, i appreciate the opinions that udehill gave me, but telling me he doesn't like my choices is a little rude in itself...to me at least.
(this message still sounds rude...im sorry guys, im just typing fast and trying to get simple sentances out there...only in the first message was i actually being rude :P )
