I have a 7950 HD and a i5 3570k and 4gb ram. If I get 8gb ram would I see noticeable difference ..

What is your experience moving from 4gb ram to 8gb ram

noticeable ?

Not really. You would be able to run more programs at the same time and context switch between them quicker but in bf3 terms you'll see no real performance improvement

If you play games such as Minecraft it would be better, it seems minecraft runs mostly off RAM.

Not quite what you're asking for, but: I recently added an SSD hard drive to my setup and installed BF3 on it along with windows. My map load times went from ~45 seconds to about 10. If you're frustrated with long loading times then an SSD is a great purchase.

Adding more RAM won't give you better FPS if that's what you are asking. 4 GB of RAM is enough for Battlefield.

When I had 4 GB ram, Skype would crash Battlefield (back before I used Teamspeak as voice chat) and some other quirks like that. For me 12 GB ram fixed that issue completely, and any map loading times after the first game of the day seem to have sped up as well.

I don't see a difference in frames per second though.

8GB of Ram is the minimun these days, all my stuff up, takes around 5-6Gb.

I'm sure after 2.5 years the OP made a decision. Nice necro though.

I wasn't the guy who necrod it. I wouldn't even had noticed it if you didn't bring it up.

Why pick on this post and not the guy who actually did necro, if you're going to point it out at all.
