I have an Phenom 9850 with 8GB of DDR2 3200 Ram in it right now.
What would give me the biggest improvement?
the extra 100mhz of a 9950 or upgrading the RAM to 8GB of DDR2 8500?
I originally went with the 3200 to save some money..........it was a lot more expensive 7 months ago and it had a nice rebate.
Here's a link to it : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145176 It's 5-5-5-18
I was considering this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145197 it's 5-5-5-15.
So would the extra memory speed and better timing make for a faster computer then just swapping out the processor from a 2.5Ghz to a 2.6Ghz?
I'm not sure if I'll do this, but I'm curious if it would be a noticeable change. I mainly do Photoshop and lightroom on that computer. I was originally thinking about just holding off for the new processors in January, which some speculate might run upto 3.00Ghz stock.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions
