Will upgrading RAM improve LSPDFR/GTA performance

Recommended Posts

Currently have 8GB in single channel, due to the cost of RAM, I can only afford to get a single 4GB stick (same brand and speed). Will this increase FPS rate, reduce game crashes? Or am I just better spending more on a decent card? Upgrading from a GTX 750 Ti to a 1050?

It'll reduce game crashes yes, Increase FPS rate No. Fps is controlled by processor and graphics card but if you are reaching max ram used when playing video games then you will see a performance drop. Upgrade to a 1050 or higher.

If it were you what would you do? I also need to upgrade my SSD (currently running Windows on a 60GB drive).

Get a better graphics card. Which ever you could afford. The higher the better. I have a gtx 1080

It all depends on what your priorities are. If you're wanting a smoother experience, I'd go for increasing your memory size. If you're wanting a more beautiful experience, you're better off with a graphics upgrade. Either way you go, be careful of the limitations of your processor and power supply!

 

Best of luck!
