    I know right?

    I have Bioshocks to beat, Batman games, heck, I haven’t even beat Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and I’ve got 150 hours in that damn game already! Let alone Skyrim HA! Haven’t even started that one.

    Oof, that's tough! You'd almost have to pick a game at random and play just that game until you finish. Else you end up hopping around forever :p

    Hi

    Im planning to add RAM to my 51m.
    By now he is running with 2*8 gb, the idea is to move on 4*8gb, so I keep the 2 original Dimm.
    Here are the two installed sticks

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    Should I go for two new Dimm with the exact same spec (dunno if they are easy to buy)? Or other DDR4 2666mhz are okay?

    Do you think this one is the exact same? https://www.dell.com/en-en/shop/del...1rx8-ddr4-sodimm-2666mhz/apd/a9206671/mémoire

    Thanks

    You should check out Destiny 2. It's free to play now on steam, you only have to purchase the season passes/DLCs if you want. It's a fun FPS/MMO. It's a pretty fun game, although the end game gets a bit stale.

    Best way would be to get the same part number, problem is that even that can sometimes lead to memory issues, because it's not a pretested kit of 4.

    you should check out a game called "Control" that is on sale in the Epic games store for 30 bucks until Wednesday (the store says it's 40 bucks, but it only charged me 30 when i checked out). i think at the moment it is one of the best games to show off ray tracing on these RTX graphics cards. i've played it for about 8 hours now and the reflections, lighting, and surfaces look amazing.

    On the memory question - like to take the system to 32 GB or maybe 64, any suggestions from anyone on good memory to go with for the AW Area 51M R1?

    I've had HyperX memory installed from the get go, had it in previous laptops too without issue.

    Even if i put LM on all my laptops, i have to say that i like the way you see things. Kryonaut is a very good paste and if that is enough to make your system being able to play games...why not. LM is not necessary for every machine.
