FPS and RAM
Bosnia and Herzegovina MILENKOLaka 
Hello guys, I have one question. I want to add 4gb of RAM more to my current 4gb, then I'll have 8gb in total. Will that help me to increase my FPS in cs:go and how much? I think I have problem with that low RAM since my fps is kinda low, about 130-140. My specs are average but still I don't get enough fps with this pc. Maybe it causes some bottleneck or whatever? My specs are: Intel i5 @650 ati 5770 hawk 4gb RAM Thanks

Ram does not affect fps

so ur telling me i can have 100mb ram and 300 fps yay

A game requires RAM but it still doesn't affect the fps of the game by adding more
2015-11-11 18:02
It will increase overall pc performance right? How come that won't help me in any way? :/

Yes it will increase your overall performance. You will be allowed to run more applications side by side. However, keep in mind that those applications also have to be processed by the cpu as well, not just been stored in the memory. You could have 64 gb of RAM but still not be able to run multiple applications due to a lower end cpu. You should be fine though, the upgrade is defiantly worth it.

RAM will affect FPS if there is not sufficient ram in place to run the game. However, it can also have an impact if there is already enough. More RAM will allow you to keep more data in the memory, which in simplistic terms will allow more applications to run via multi task. So for example, you could browse the web and play cs and have an fps drop while doing it, but a RAM upgrade could reduce that fps drop.

But it doesn't affect the games performance like say a new cpu

If there isn't enough RAM to hold windows core processes + counter-strike, it will give a performance boost. Although I doubt the source engine will require more than 4gb, but if you have a computer you've had for a while that's full of shit then you could see a noticeable impact. But in principle yes, RAM does not make much difference.
2015-11-11 18:14
no
2015-11-11 18:00
Won't make a difference for GO.
2015-11-11 18:01
csgo is based on CPU.
2015-11-11 18:01
Yeah, but maybe it will increase overall pc performance and allow cpu and gpu to work easier/faster, or I'm just deluded? :D
2015-11-11 18:02
Back in the SDRAM and DDR2 days and stuff, yes. DDR3 speed makes so little difference that 1333 and 1600Mhz kits are made in a ratio of 50:1 to any other speeds. The faster the speed, the higher the latency and the more cycles are needed to move the same data, anyway. So only stuff like AutoCAD and editing programs see any benefit as they'll have the same data on the RAM for a long period of time.

ah ok :/ thanks

Does AutoCAD actually take up a lot of memory? As far as I knew it was just a 2d design and drawing tool? Can't be that resource intense can it?
2015-11-11 18:11
AutoCAD has been a huge resource hog since they introduced 3D Mesh modeling in 2009. It's always been a 2D/3D modeller, by the way.
2015-11-11 18:14
Oh, that's interesting. I've never actually used it, I just assumed it was similar to Microsoft visio program.

Nope, before i had just 2GB ddr2, and now i have 8GB ddr3, just affect +20 fps, something like it.
2015-11-11 18:05
yes you will have +0.01 fps boost if lucky go for it

Your graphics card is making a huge bottleneck.
2015-11-11 18:08
Change everything if you want better fps. RAM Can only help if you're just.. low on it, stuttering.
2015-11-11 18:10
If your problem is not too little RAM, adding more won't make a difference. Your problem is probably your CPU and GPU.
2015-11-11 18:11
Yeah you might gain extra FPS (don't expect much) but only in case that your ram is heavily loaded, bottlenecking- While you are ingame press ctrl+alt+delete and start task manager go under performance tab and look at memory usage. If memory is fully/mostly used you might see a performance boost if you add more ram. I used to have a 5770 (sapphire vapor x edition) and I had a problem with FPS and as long as you stay over 100 you shouldn't really worry.
2015-11-11 18:13
ram can add stability to your fps, example if youre sometimes dropping fps from like 100 to 40 for a few secs, it "may" be because of low ram or too many processes at one time, so if you get more ram, you can have more processes opened up and loose no performance
