The purpose of RAM

The computer processor stores in memory a piece of data that needs processing. The higher performance and capacity of RAM, the faster it is possible to perform various tasks set by the user. Especially critical indicator of RAM is its volume. An important feature of the strap is the frequency of reading or writing data.
The higher the memory, the more processes it can be stored and the faster will be the access to the stored information from the operating system and computer processor.

The choice of strap

Before selection you need to find out what type of strap is installed in the computer. Most modern systems are used for the DDR3 boards, which benefit both in performance and in the stability of most other types of memory. Have not lost popularity DDR2, though most modern manufacturers are giving their preference towards DDR3. Strap style can be defined in accordance with the inscription on the RAM or on the documentation that was in one set with the computer.

When choosing the amount of RAM you should also choose the most optimal value. If you use computer to run office applications and programs increase RAM to more than 4GB in total is meaningless. For a gaming system will fit the amount of memory to 8 GB.
Strap memory must match the equipment used, otherwise a significant increase in performance can not be achieved.

The frequency of the acquired strap is also a parameter that affects the speed of the computer. It is important to set the modules have the same frequency. For example, if the computer will be installed two boards with a frequency at 1333 and 1866 MHz, the final frequency of operation of both of the strips will equal 1333 MHz, i.e. the second module will run on less power.

To increase the performance in games will also help the two-channel principle of operation of RAM, which is to install two RAM boards of smaller volume in the direction of higher speed information reading. For example, for a computer it is better to install 4 GB of RAM of 2 laths on 2 GB. The performance of such a system will be higher than the device with only one module of 4 GB. This way will be able to achieve higher performance of the system, as one plank of a larger size is much slower than memory smaller volume.
