Here's a bit of a background:
My current PC is a hand-me-down Lenovo Thinkstation E20 from my dad. He was nice enough for one christmas to upgrade the old GPU Nvidia Quadro 600 to a GTX 760 (replacing the stock PSU in the process) and I added a basic soundcard to see if it would make a difference, to experiment. Said awesome dad was also nice enough to ugrade the ram to 16GB from 4GB. Which I thought was freaking awesome. However being naive about the world of pc building, I didn't realise that this was 16GB (4x4) of
EDIT I have made a huge mistake and it turns out I have DDR3-1333MHz in my computer!! Excuse me!! Anyway the below still sort of stands but I suppose it is much less important/worthwhile to upgrade now...
Obviously, a new motherboard and cpu is in order as well if I wish to upgrade the memory. But what I wish to know is, would 8GB of DDR3-1866 (Kingston Fury Series) be an upgrade over the previous? Or would I have to go for 16GB? And is it even worth upgrading currently other than that "shiny" factor? Everything I've thrown at it with the exception of Corel Painter X3, it runs very happily.
Here's the best approximation I can give you of my current pc if that helps any more: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/d6BbQ7
