  • Is it worth upgrading?

    Hello,

    System runs fine, but just cos I can, wondered if people would advocate upgrading to 16Gb RAM rather than 8 (might need to look at my mobo spec for the config of the slots) just for the sake of upgrading?

    I tend to game more than anything. Might also look into the 4K route in the relatively near future

    I'm not sure 16 is going to be a huge improvement. You might be better off saving your money for a better GPU to run the 4K screen.

      I upgraded to 16gb last year because it was cheap to pick up another 8gb of ram and i thought it cant hurt to have the extra.

        Yeah I'm not saying don't go for it if you want to upgrade something, just don't expect to see huge performance gains.

          Depends on what OS you are using
