Should i upgrade my ram ?

Post #1 by aaronpawlak » Mon Apr 02, 2018 3:05 pm


My Pentium G4560 is bottlenecking my GTX 1060 6 Gig and was wondering if upgrading my ram from a single stick of 8 GB ram to a Dual channel of 12 GB of ram , should I ride it out with this idea or get a new cpu entirely?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Yeah for sure dual channel will improve performance.. But that chip isn't the best at backing up your 1060 !
