Hello
My pc having some drop fps problem in some cases some 1 told me that I need upgrade my memory from 8gb to 16gb and to a faster memory kit and my pc and my cpu will perform a lot better I monitoring while playing in this case destiny 2 pc and I saw that the game taking only 5-5.5gb memory utill how this make sense that upgrade to higher memory will imcrease my performance if this game not even use my 8 gb
My pc
Cpu:ryzen 3 2200g
Gpu:rx 570 4gb
Ram:2x 4gb ddr4 2400mhz think to upgrade to 2x 8gb 3200mhz

I think a part of the issue is you probably have other programs using ram as well. Windows doesn't let a single program use all 8GBs because then there would be nothing for other programs. 8GBs is bare minimum I'd use for a gaming machine, and 2400MHz is rather slow. Faster ram would help.

I'm not sure it would fix everything. You still have a lower end CPU, and a GPU that can barely handle 1080. If you are trying to max out modern games at 1080 and want 60FPS it's not going to happen with that setup. Even with the new ram.

On medium / high settings I run all games more then 60fps it's just not super stable fps in some games when there is much going on it drop from 90 to 30-35 fps sometimes

Right. And I suspect a lot of that is the 2200G. It's a good chip, but it's still a 4C/4T CPU. It will get overwhelmed at times. I have the 570 myself and I know it's doesn't have the ability to max out games at 1080. You should be able to play well enough with that setup. But I'd expect there to be slow downs. Even with the ram upgrade.
