For RAM sticks, there are 2 categories :
For office use, a RAM stick "Kingston ValueRAM 4 Go DDR3 1333 MHz CL9 SR X8" will be sufficient. ValueRAM means that this stick was subjected to ultra rigorous testing as burn-in. This RAM stick is 2nd in sales of LDLC for RAM sticks.
For gamer use, you should refer you to RAM sticks with a more or less large radiator. Indeed, when you play, components heats up that when you use your computer for the office. To avoid your components from overheating, you need a larger radiator to dissipate heat better.
For gamer, we recommend the following brands :
Whichever brand you choose, keep in mind that the motherboards impose certain limits : technical limitations but also physical.
Technical limitations :
The physical limits :
Another physical constraint is at the level of the gamer fan (if you choose one) :
With current processors, graphics calculations are performed, in part, by the graphic part of the processor :
Thus, for a office computer, the graphics card will be optional. Warning : This method works, but a part of the RAM will be reserved as graphics memory by Windows. Which will cause the message "Installed memory (RAM) : x.xx GB (x.xx GB usable)" in the Windows system properties. This message also appears if you try to use 4GB of RAM with a 32-bit OS.
For graphics cards, there are, again, three product lines :
Among the brands of graphics cards that exist, here are a few brands associated with their range :
Small precision concerning trademark of graphics cards :
For this reason, you can find several brands of graphics cards that are named in the same way. For example : ASUS GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 - GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2 Go, MSI GeForce GTX 750 Ti OC 2GB and Gainward GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB.
Last point, take a high-end graphics card with a low-end hard disk or low RAM, will be useless. For example, to speed up the loading of a game (at its start), it's an SSD that you should use. The graphics card will not affect (or very little) the game loading time (at its start).
