Increase ram?

Spec >>>>>>>>

recently was playing some emulator games and was lagging.

is it worth it to increase my ram by another 2x4GB?

*** Most likely not going to buy any AAA games, most recent AAA game that i bought was BFv ****

Sorry to hijack, would like to ask if there is any much difference in gaming/frame rate performance between 16GB HyperX ram and 16GB Kingston value ram?

But the issue is, is it worth it as nowadays is ddr4?

Assuming you are referring to DDR3-1600 based on your profile, HyperX Savage/Fury is CL9/10 and Kingston Value is CL11. HyperX has slightly better performance though we are talking about only one or two FPS.

bro advise u to monitor how much memory is taken up in your task manager/performance/memory

clean up any useless apps or services u dont need and monitor again.

if really cant then no choice but to buy more rams/.dont open chrome or apps while playing games.
