So in the near future I think I'm going to try and upgrade my PC's RAM and video card
Right now I'm working on Windows 7 Professional 64 bit SP1
-CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965
-RAM: 8.00 Dual Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz
-Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. CG1330(AM3)
-Graphics: VX2770 Series j (1920x1080@60Hz)
ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series (ASUSTeK Computer Inc)
-Hard Drives: 932GB Seagate ST31000528AS ATA Device (SATA)
-Optical Drives: HL-DT-ST BD-RE WH14Ns40
The computer runs CS6 decently-ish but CC nearly brought my system to its knees.
What kind of RAM and such could I get that might run CS6 and CC better, Something that could run that Mercury Playback thing that was incompatible with my current set up, but it would also be compatible with the motherboard, CPU and Windows 7 and all that. I'm assuming I couldn't buy just any old RAM and such and stick it in with good results.
What brand of RAM should I get? What size and speed should I be looking for? I don't need a speed demon but just something that's going to run well.
What brand of video card should I get?
Is there anything else in the computer that should possibly be upgraded?
