Hello everyone. is ddr3 1600mhz ram speed enough for core i7 4790 3.6ghz for 1080p ultra 60 fps no anti aliasing? peace.

Ram speed/frequency has almost no effect on gaming performance(im talking about less than even 1-2 percent). It only becomes noticible when you are performing heavily multi-threaded workloads that can actually manage tu utilize high speed memories. Also, not every processor utilizes high speed memories to their max potential. So I'd say you're pretty fine there. No problems whatsoever.

thanks buddy for the answer

It's enough for my i7 4790 and 1070 for 1440p, but as already said by keeperoftheflame, it makes no real difference.

The 1070 is alright for 1440p gaming. Is the CPU the K version?

Non k buddy

That sucks. What a waste of money.

Hey, I have the non K version and at the time it was £100 less than the K version :(

And on amazon today it's still £85 cheaper.
