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?

Benchmarks: UT2004, Doom 3, Battlefield 2

Unreal Tournament 2004

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2004 is the sequel to the highly popular UT2003 and uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology. Unreal Tournament 2004 employs the use of Vertex and Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 9 videocard if you plan to play competitively.

UT2004 also does not need 2GB of memory to run fast. Overclocking boosts framerate quite nicely too.

Doom 3

Source: id Software

Doom 3 is the most advanced game to date. it takes advantage of the latest videocard technology and pushes the processing power of the CPU to its absolute limit. At its highest setting, Ultra quality, texture sizes pass the 500MB mark which means even tomorrow's videocards will have a hard time running everything. The frame rates in the game itself are locked at 60 fps so anything above that point is wasted. Each test is run three times with the third run being recorded.

Doom 3
LQ 640x480 FPS Ranking
2x 512MB Mushkin PC2-4200 (200/533) 96.4
2x 512MB Crucial Ballistix PC2-5300 (200/667) 96.6
2x 512MB Corsair PC2-8000UL (200/800) 96.7
2x 1024MB Corsair Twin2X2048-6400 PRO (200/800) 96.5
2x 1024MB Corsair Twin2X2048-6400 PRO (231/935) 112.3

Doom 3 numbers at stock speeds are flat all around, and as expected overclocking boosts the overall framerate very nicely. If your machine seems a bit laggy with newer games, perhaps it's time to overclock. ;-)

Battlefield 2

In Battlefield 2, players will choose to fight for one of three military superpowers: the United States, the Chinese, or the newly formed Middle East Coalition. Armed with the latest modern weaponry, players can take control of any of the games 30+ vehicles to engage in major conflicts with over 64 players in some of the largest online battles on the PC. Test is run five times, which will then be averaged with the highest and lowest runs disregarded, settings are high quality at 1024x768.

In our last test Battlefield 2, we saw a decent performance boost with 2GB of memory installed. Anyone who has played the game would definitely agree that more memory is definitely helpful. If you would like to see how your system stacks up to ours, here's a quick how to benchmark Battlefield 2 blurb. In fact, of all the current games on the market, Battlefield 2 is perhaps the best example of more memory improving performance - but it is not necessarily the norm as our other tests have illustrated.
