Hello GB Community,
I recently built myself a pretty decent PC (i5 3.4ghz, asus p8p67-m pro, asus gtx 570, 8g ddr3 1600mhz ram) and although I am quite pleased with the performance (50-60fps in BF3 max settings and I'm curious how it holds out with Max Payne 3) I am curious to see what type of performance increase I can gain by adding another 8 gigs of ram. And would it be substantial?
I have also thought of getting another 570 to SLI however with my MB I only have 1 16x, 1 8x, and 1 4x pci-e slots thus meaning I could only run the cards in 8x. However, from what I've read I shouldn't notice too much of a difference (maybe about a 3%-5% drop from 16x).
Anyway, my question to you is should I bother with another 8 gigs of ram or save up another $300 to SLI another 570.
