We have done testing with this Kingston RAM for understanding if it makes too much of a difference to use a 1600 Mhz RAM or a 2133 Mhz RAM.

I also have some of the recommendations based on my own experience while gaming and doing different tasks and gaming on PC.  How much RAM is sufficient for a Gaming PC build or a general PC you wish to use for both gaming, doing Photoshop work , using adobe premier or Adobe After effects ? will answer all these questions below.

Unboxing Kingston HyperX 2133 Mhz 8 GB DDR3 RAM

The RAM is scarlet Red in color and looks really cool. Addition of it to the cabinet increases the oomph factor of our gaming rig. The RAM is nicely packed in a cardboard cover and inside it, the ram is nicely packed in the plastic cover.

It really feels solid in hand and the fins at the top of the RAM looks aggressive as well as they are functionally important to keep the ram cooler by dissipating all the heat. The height of the RAM is around 30 mm and it is great if you have a large cooler like a Hyper 212X which I am using. It becomes fairly easy to add the Ram even in the closest slot to the Cooler.

Three Important Points I would Like to Re-iterate.

1). How Much Ram Do you need for Gaming PC ?

I strongly believe you should start with 8 GB of RAM even if you are building a Gaming PC upto 1 lakh and try all games and software before looking for adding additional RAM. Definitely it will save money for you which you can use in Buying SSD or a better PC Cooler.

2) DDR3 VS DDR4 – Which is the better Choice for gamers ?

Performance wise you wont find much difference, but if you are building a new gaming rig I would suggest to you to go for a motherboard which supports DDR4 rather than DDR3.  It does offer higher clock speeds and lower latency and is more future proof. The pricing difference is too low between DDR3 Vs DDR4 now compared to 1-2 years back which makes the case for DDR4 much more stronger.

3). Which Frequency RAM Should You Buy ?

I think it is more from a budget perspective and motherboard compatibility point of view you should  go for high speed Ram 1866 or 2133 or even 2400. It won’t make much of difference in performance though if the price differential a bit of extra speed wont hurt. I would personally go for a 2133 or 2400 Mhz at this stage considering the pricing is not high.

We will be doing lot more videos along with the written articles for readers in PC Hardware, Gadgets & Smartphones in 2016.
