I know :( but I was looking at the 1600 speed on my current... would a higher, like 2400 be better, even if I stayed in 8gb?

It is your money and if you wish to allow me to help you spend it that's fine :D

A bit more conservative cost wise but has a better Cas Latency than the quad channel Ram that costs almost $230.00 http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

LOL!!

Is there such a thing as 8GB with 2400? Would the 2400 be better than the 1600 I currently have or am I confusing something in my head?

I wasn`t sure what you meant so here is 8GB of 2400 Ram which also has a better CL9 rating http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

The Ram would be faster than the present 1600MHz.

Gday.
Please read the article below, the conclusion reached is supported by toher reviews.

Can you give us an idea of what you are looking to increase, the overall performance of the computer or a more specific task , like FPS? There may be a better option, an SSD if you do not have one installed at the present.

Overall performance of the computer. Higher FPS would be nice. Don't get me wrong, the speed of the computer right now is pretty good, I was asking more out of a curiosity's sake.

Consider using this SSD for overall performance gain.

You might look at over-clocking your GPU.

I will be getting a superclocked GPU soon! Thank you for the info though, I will def look into that in the mean time. Will I need to do anything with the OS when I get the SSD? I have an OEM disk for Windows 7.

As you are not changing the MB you can use your disc. you just need to back up any important DATA from the mechanical HDD then disconnect it.
restart the computer and ensure AHCI is set in the BIOS.
Install and connect the SSD making sure it is the only HDD connected to the MB.
Do a clean install of Windows.
