    it takes a TON of ram to do anything useful with a ramdisk that will rely on the high transfer rates

    but you can do a few things with the 4GB trial, you can mount it as the cache folder for chrome and make your webpages snappy, you can also mount it as wow's cache and speed up data retrieval on tooltips and stuff

    you can also use a supercache instead, it's basically a ramdisk cache for your hard drive, similar to RST, this is my C:\ drive:

    If you play allot of single player games, by all means, save games almost exclusively save to primary drive so data loss is not an issue. But for multiplayer games you just get stuck waiting for other people. Entering a dungeon, wait for party/raid. Starting LOL, wait for other people, which you would even with an ordinary HDD. It's mostly for show.

    I only got it because of the discount and gave my old 2 * 4GB kit to my bro as bonus Christmas present.

    But with the licensed version i am able to fit the entirety of WOW into my RAM.

    I've got more than enough room to fit my favorite games on my SSD. There is absolutely no need for this.. but show is exactly what it is about

    Also, have a current pic of my computer setup.



    AKA: Motherboard is off for RMA services at ASUS.

    Insured for $200, kind of hope they lose it. $200 could get me a far superior motherboard. Boy, P8P67, so overpriced when they launched. -.-

    i hope not, i've had several things get destroyed or lost in shipping, not once has insurance ever covered it, it's pretty much a scam to get extra money from you

    it's not about the pocket change you pay for insurance, its the fact that insurance will always find some dumb excuse to not pay up

    Well, like my mom said, they do this so much, she doubts they'll lose it.

    ASUS is set to get it on Friday actually, too! Paid for 3 day shipping, it's getting there in 2, score!

    Chances are they wouldn't be able to refund the 3 dollars insurance premium, let alone the damage to the motherboard. Probably not worth your time.

    Oh how I have been threatening to post my rig... Now that I am (almost) tipsy enough to take pics of it and do so...







    Crappy phone pics, so sorry. Also, sorry for the wires in the last pic. Just hooked everything back up after putting some new, nicer SATA cables in.

    Stats:
    i5-3570k @ 4.3gHz (stock voltage)
    Asus P8Z77-V
    G.Skill 1600MHz, 1.25v 4GBx2
    Noctua NH-D14
    Crucial M4 128GB SSD (boot)
    WD Caviar Black 1TB (data)
    Gigabyte GTX670 WF3
    Seasonic Platinum 860W
    Silverstone Raven RV-02E

    Other specs not seen:
    Dell U23HM
    AudioEngine D1 DAC
    Samson MediaONE 4a speakers
    Grado SR-80i headphones
    Zalman clip-on mic
    Corsair K-90 keyboard
    Corsair M-60 + M-90 mice

    Yes, I know the PSU is overkill for my current rig. Yes I know I could have gone cheaper with the MB. blah blah blah.

    I chose what I did for certain reasons. New GPU coming September~. I needed WiFi, and since I got a great deal on the MB, why not? Etc.

    ONE MORE THING! I am consuming beer while taking the pics. I need more to get better pics. And a camera.

    Start a thread in the lovely Upgrade/Build section and give us the details laid out in the sticky. Loads of people around here would be happy to help!
