Since one RAM stick is corrupt I use only 2GB and played Crysis 2 on highest settings and it run perfect. I guess todays PC games are limited by the console market, that's why. The only problem is if I run a game, minimize it, launch a couple of other progs and try to navigate through explorer fast, the machine becomes slower, with 4GB it did't happen. Anyway, I just ordered the cheapest 1GB RAM as replacement for the time before I get a fresh pair of memory, which hopefully will not be corrupt.

ASs for running Crysis 2...look at its RAM specs...it probably only needs 1 -2 GB to run anyway

Without much background info, just the facts.
A 3 meter WLAN antenna cable with a WLAN antenna attached to the PC. The distance from the antenna to the modem is exactly 3,5 meters (perfectly horizontal, no obstacles).
Ethernet cable (I guess length doesn't matter much there) with an access point (802.11n/WPA2) attached to the PC. The distance from the access point to the modem is exactly 3,5 meters (perfectly horizontal, no obstacles).
PC________3m_cable_________Antenna . . . . . . . . 3,5m air . . . . . . . . .WLAN Modem
3 meters = ~ 10 feet
I know the access point is probably better, but considering the cable length and the distance to the router from the antenna (100% horizontal) would "version 1" be so much worse than the "version 2" solution? I know access point is good for very problematic situations, but in my case the only problem seems to be the 3 meters cable.
Well, I could just use a 7 meters LAN cable, but the problem is that the cable would lie around in the open (no way to hide it) and that's probably not an option.

I try to figure something out, but an extension cable for the WLAN antenna would be the easiest and cheapest way. I have a powerful antenna and I know that WLAN in the same room over such a short distance without obstacles brings good results, only the extension cable is what I'm unsure about.
Hmm, if I wont figure out how to install the cat cable, I probably try the wlan option and see if it performs enough. By the way, what is the difference between cat 5 and cat 6? Also, the DSL cable from the modem (that goes to the splitter) looks like a cat cable but the wire is very much thinner than the usual cat cables. On Amazon all cats look regular thick, if I could have a thin wired cat, I might be able to work something out, maybe.
Hmm, something like this could work. Is it advisable?

Since I get back around 70 € / 100 $, I think I can dare to go for 2 x 4GB. That would be defenitely better for gaming than 2 x 2GB, no?
I read that i5 doesn't support 1600Mhz and will run it in at most 1333Mhz anyway, is that true?

As for i5....no comment...dont know TBH...sorry. "Google" ?

Someone I know can give me the following kit: G.Skill F3-12800CL9D-4GBECO, so it's 2 x 2GB, 1600Mhz, CL9 and 1,35Volt. The low volt speaks for it.
I wanted to go for 8GB, but since I can get the above named kit virtually for free, I guess 4GB is not to bad still.
Only few things confuse me. I hear on sites that this kit (1600Mhz) is for P55 and i5, while at the same time I read that p55 or i5 can only have the stock speed of 1333Mhz. Some people review though that they use it with their i5 and their system shows that it runs with 1600Mhz for them (they didn't mention over clocking, they just put it in and say its 1600Mhz). What's the real deal? I hear also, that if it is a 1600 RAM and only runs as 1333, than you can afford to tweak it in other areas (as like in return), such as clock speed and voltage.
Can't resist 8GB. Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz CL8 1.5V seems good, can't resist the thought. 4GB might be all you need right now, but I'm sure soon games will demand a little bit more. Plus better multitasking while at that.

Their quality assurance testing I'd say is one of the best out of many RAM manufacturers.
