unless you only have 2gb dont bother as faster ram will only make the cpu slightly faster

Ok thanks Dasa no i got 4gig but in DDR2,Just thought 8 gig of DDR3 might give a better performance.

ddr2 vs ddr3 performance increases for the cpu seem to be between 0-22%

depends how fast your ddr2 is what cpu and how far its overclocked

but mostly it depends on the program with most games probably only seeing ~5% gain

more than 4g ram may reduce stutters and loading times in a few games especial if you havent tweaked your windows install to reduce memory usage
