Best RAM for Gaming PC and High-end Servers
RAM or Random Access Memory is the one of the most essential and important components of a computer. RAM is a high speed volatile memory that stores important instructions to be made available for processor for processing. Also when processing is finished by the processor then the data is made available to different devices or programs through RAM only. RAM is commonly called as memory and is available in different types and speeds. Currently the most common RAM types are DDR2, DDR3 and DDR4 RAM. DDR2 is nearly obsolete, DDR3 is currently being used with most systems, DDR4 is new but is gaining popularity and is the future of DDR (double Data Rate) RAM. I have written many useful articles on RAM in this blog which you can find below.

Along with Processor and Graphics Card, RAM also plays and important part in the performance of a computer. For normal PC any RAM can do but if you are a gamer or performance enthusiast then you have to use performance series RAM if you want top performance in games and other memory intensive programs and softwares.
