    I’ve got an old hp setup which has 8 gigs of ram which run at speed 1333mhz. Now i also have another 2 gigs of ram but when i install it the ram speed decreases to 1067mhz. So im here to ask which combination would be better:
    A) 10gigs 1067mhz
    B) 8 gigs 1333mhz

      The 8 gigs.

      For most that will be the 8 gigabytes. Not to offend you but this topic is well done so I’ll stop here.

      Also, for most, even a bump to 16 or 32 gigabytes yields marginal gains.

      Now if your PC still runs on old tech HDDs (hard disk drives) then you can really give it an overall huge boost by replacing that with the new SSD (solid state drive.)

      8GB of RAM is the sweet spot for the majority of users, providing enough RAM for virtually all productivity tasks and less demanding games. (link removed by moderator) If you’re running demanding applications like video editing and CAD, or you’re a hardcore gamer, then we recommend that you start at 16GB and go up from there.

      RAM’s speed

      It depends on the tasks you want to do with your computer. But I’d go for more RAM than faster RAM. This is especially useful when you have a lot of tasks that consume too much memory. You can always improve your RAM’s speed in some other ways.
