Corsair TwinX2048-6400 PRO PC2-6400 DDR-2 Memory Review

Corsair TwinX2048-6400 PRO PC2-6400 DDR-2 Memory Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Battlefield 2 is especially well known for requiring at least 1GB of installed RAM memory to run smoothly... so why not aim high and upgrade to 2GB of installed RAM?

3DMark05 numbers are very close despite the memory overclock. It just goes to show you that no matter how you equip a machine, the videocard is most vital for gamers.

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

Botmatch - 640x480 FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 81.5
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 84.6
2x 512MB Corsair PC2-8000UL (200/800) 84.87

2x 1024MB Corsair Twin2X2048-6400 PRO (231/935) 97.66

UT2003 framerates do not budge when the system is installed with 2GB of memory, this game clearly does not need the extra memory. This isn't the case for all games though, so it pays to do some research.
