I think of RAM as an internal USB stick connected directly to the motherboard. No moving parts and because of the direct connection the data movement is really fast, but as has been said, RAM is cleared every time you shut down your computer. Therefore, only temp files and programs can be stored there. Saves, mods, logs and such would disappear if not consciously unloaded every time you shut down. And when you start again, the programs have to be reloaded onto the RAMDisk, though there are programs to do this for you.

I tried it at 8 GB of RAM and made a mess of it when I started running into low memory issues. It worked well, but I screwed up putting the temp files back onto my hard drive and ended up having to reinstall Windows 10 and a few other programs to get the paths right again. Still, my fault, and fortunately Windows 10 reinstall is fool proof enough to keep this fool from losing anything.

Jac says at least 12 GB of RAM, I would say 16 GB would be better. We could feasibly double our DDR3 RAM for $70 dollars each, but I would expect I'd be satisfied with that and not try the RAMDisk again, unless I was disappointed in the performance boost from our current 8 GB.

Did that muddy it up for you? :biggrin:

Hmm, does it actually make that much of a difference?

RAM is really cheap now, so I think I can try that out.

8 gigs 1200 mhz ram costs like 3500, I am currently running i7-4790k 4.4 Ghz(overclocked), 32 gigabytes of ram at 1200 Mhz and since everyone else mentioned their Gpus, I'm on a Zotac Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti AMP Extreme 6 gb.

I don't know what difference it'll make, but I'll try it out.

Again, I don't mean to show off, and I'll mention that my computer doesn't run Fraps,

I am but a fragment cast apart from the whole.
A bit of flotsam to cling to in the storm.

I am a fly in the ointment, I am a whisper in the shadows.
I am also an old old woman. More than that you need not know.

I think a ramdisk is awesome for open world types games where there are basically continuous data loads.

Ramdisk make a big difference in morrowind! My Main gaming PC is really fast, I get 30+ fps even in the worst places in MW but there are still small pauses because of cell loading.

With a ramdisk those are all but gone.
Wait ... What?
