    A few questions regarding the innards of my pc.
    « on: January 28, 2012, 11:35:08 AM »
    Hi, I was on Amazon and I was looking for a RAM upgrade and saw Corsair Vengeance 8gb RAM for 40 reduced from 111, is that too good to be true?

    I also saw Corsair Dominator 8gb RAM for 70 reduced from 320, too good to be true again?

    If not which one is better? The main use for them is gaming. Also another question about SSDs, apparently having your OS on the SSD massively increases performance of the OS, but when you install an OS onto a drive, doesn't that mean that everything you save on your computer goes to that drive?
    Or do you have to change that once you have installed the OS onto your drive already?

    Thank in advance.

    As for the RAM, it looks fine as long as you know it is compatible with your motherboard. An SSD will definitely improve your systems' performance dramatically if used as your OS drive. When you save things to your computer they go where you tell the computer to put them...so if you don't want them on your SSD just tell it to put the file somewhere else. Also when installing programs the installer will usually give the the option to install them to a different location(sometimes a bad idea).
