    Exclamation Question about processor and motherboard

    Hi everyone !

    I have 3 questions !

    1 - How are you today ?

    -------------------------------------------

    2 - I have a computer with :
    ---- A TeamSpeak server
    ---- A Minecraft server
    ---- A Plex server
    On this computer, I have only 2048Mb of DDR2 200MHz RAM.
    I need more to run those 3 servers correctly.
    I gave to the minecraft server 1024Mb but it can't keep up. There's lag every second.

    Details specs :
    AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+
    ASUSTeK Computer INC. M2N
    NVidia Geforce 8600GT from Asus
    3 hard drive
    DDR2 200MHz 2Gb (5-6-6-18)
    W8.1

    I found this item : http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231122

    Would it be a problem if I have 1 dual channel kit of DDR2 200MHz and 1 dual channel kit of DDR2 SDRAM 800 (2 x 2Gb) ?

    -------------------------------------------

    3 - Here's my gaming computer specs :
    i5 2500K 3.30Ghz
    BIOSTAR TP67XE
    Geforce GTX570
    DDR3 8Gb
    Samsung SSD 750Gb + 2 hard drive
    W8.1

    And here's the specs of a computer that I recently bought :
    i5 4570 3.20Ghz
    S1150 ATX ASUS B85-PLUS B85
    ASUS PCIE GEFORCE GTX670 2Gb
    1 hard drive
    Corsair Vengeance Pro 1600Mhz DDR3 8Gb
    W8.1

    I switch the GTX570 and the GTX670 so now my gaming computer has the GTX670.
    I also increase the memory in my gaming computer so now Speccy tell me this :
    12Gb DDR3 666MHz (9-9-9-24)

    I would like to know if the motherboard and the processor of the computer that I recently bought are way better than the motherboard and the processor of my gaming computer. If so, should I move back the GTX670 and increase the memory of this new computer to make it my new gaming computer ?

    -------------------------------------------

    4 - What's the meaning of those numbers in speccy ?
    (Example : 12Gb DDR3 666MHz (9-9-9-24))

    -------------------------------------------

    Thanks in advance !

    Hi, i'll help with a couple if i can....

    The i5-2500k & i5-4570 aren't going to be hugely different in gaming performance to notice it at stock speeds like you have it ATM. So whichever of the two the GTX 670 is going to be in, will be better for gaming in this instance.

    Understanding the ram:

    12gb = total amount of ram.

    DDR3 = the type of ram, the higher, the faster the speed (obviously certain types are only compatible with certain motherboards).

    666Mhz = the speed of the ram, it's usually presented halved in BIOS etc.., so 666Mhz x 2 = 1333Mhz.

    (9-9-9-24) = The ram timings i.e the speed it takes to do something, lower is better but usually costs more as a result.

    For question # 2 I'm still in the dark about how dual kits work together at different speeds...I'm pretty sure they will work at there intended clock speed and will work independently from one another. If I'm wrong about this tho, your MoBo will just down clock them all to 200mhz and they will be useful anyway.

    I'm pretty sure they would get clocked down. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense for them to run at different speeds.

    Hum I see.

    And what's the difference between desktop memory and server memory. Would it be better to buy server memory ?

    ECC is more reliable but your motherboard/CPU won't be able to use that. Xeons and X79 will work fine but not your current CPU.
