    Question How noticeable is the difference of a 3 year old 6GB Ram to brand new 8gb ram

    So I ordered brand new 8gb ram for my new pc setup but I thought why not use it on my old setup for now. I've had 6 GB Ram (1x 4gb, 1x 2gb) for 3-4 years and I was wondering how big/noticeable of a difference I will notice when I upgrade to brand new 8gb ram (2x4gb)

    Yes, ram deteriorates over 3 years. Slowly but noticeably, and yes it can eventually fail completely.

    Beside 2 extra GB of memory there is no difference,it will run as smooth as it does now,but you will get better performance in some apps/games,but not too much.

    You will when running programs like Vegas Pro, After Effects, ... (and games ofc. Though these mainly eat your GPU & CPU)

    i didnt read all the previous post , so i dont know if someone already mentioned . But actually ram can be used for a very long time (about 5 years more less) it wont deteriorates as @hidudeshi mentioned . Reason for him to say that is the software constantly update therefore using more rams and such thats why your ram is getting more stressed out by the latest software and such . One thing important while choosing out ram is their clock speed get something with 1600 speed at least to feel the difference . Leave a thank if i helped
