Hi all,

I am going to be purchasing a new video card / RAM for the holidays and wanted to put up a feeler thread for my used GTX 275 and 6GB of DDR3 RAM.

I am not to sure on the rules for feeler threads, but I just wanted to see if there is any interest in these items. I haven't decided on any prices yet but I am open for offers.

I don't have any close up photos but will take some once I get my new parts. Here are some photographs of the parts when I was putting together the PC:

Thanks,
Ben

I'm trying to decide on upgrading my system to DDR3 so I might be interested in the ram, if the price is good, at the moment I can get a brand new 4gig stick for 25 bucks so, it depends on the price and shipping too actually.

It's gonna be hard to sell and ship the RAM now, especially since prices have dropped so low. Here is a link to the RAM on Newegg:

The RAM is fast and can run very aggressive latencies but that doesn't really make too much of a difference in gaming and everyday tasks.

I am getting rid of this RAM to max out my motherboard with some larger sticks.

FYI that's trip channel ram mate, wouldn't do you any good

It is a triple channel "kit" but you can still run it in dual channel if you buy one more stick. This RAM probably isn't the best option for you because you'll have to buy one more stick for 8GB.

I would be willing to sell these two items together for $100, OBO.

I'll have to say the opposite. Working in video production, RAM speed means quite a lot, as most renderers load the video into memory to be passed off to the cores. Moving from 1333Mhz to 2133Mhz on my FX rig showed almost a 10% increase, as well as lower CPU load.

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!

video rendering & transcoding definitely love raw ram bandwidth.

I don't think aggressive latencies are much of a benefit for that. Video manipulation works with large memory buffers sequentially where high latencies are less of a problem. using nice loos latencies but light speed ram throughput is where the video world shines.

having looser latencies will allow you to push memory clocks and overall bandwidth way up which is where video production is happiest.

having short latencies (at the expense of overall ram speed) benefits multitasking and some gaming where random access is much more prevalent. but don't expect to be wowed by it. The increase will only be incremental.

These days with the snoozy-latency DDR4 architectures starting to come out you have some insane raw bandwidth but really poor random memory access times unless you are using a full quad channel memory setup to make up for it.
