My friend recently bought 8gb of RAM, he claims he opens programmes quicker and supposedly more RAM helps when playing battlefield. The RAM I have now is decent, i have 4gb which I would say is enough.
Is there much more of an advantage having 8gb of RAM or should I stick with 4gb?
It can affect your gaming.
Especially playing games with big maps (like Battlefield? not sure).
More RAM is not only affecting render speeds, but encoding/decoding in general (like working with .rar files) also allows you to open more applications at the same time but then you'll need a good CPU which utilizes this RAM.
