I have a DELL XPS L502x Laptop

i7 2630 2nd Gen
8GB RAM 1333

My question is I already have 8GB already but was thinking of installing 8GB of 1600 of the Vengence RAM. Will I actaully notice a speed difference or am I just waisting my money.

I basically watch movies with it, surf the web, some excel stuff. It starts up lightning fast but once started takes a good 10-15 seconds before I can actually surf and it is driving me nuts. It has zero malware on there and not fragmented at all and all the drivers and bios are up to date.

Since you already have 8GB, I would say its just a waste of money, the "267MHz" speed difference in the RAM, I doubt would be noticed.

::EDIT::

Remember that it is actually half of the 267, so like 134MHz actual difference.

Okay, with that being said, why does my machine start like a rocket but I have to wait the other candidate 15 seconds before the Internet response? How do I fix this? It's driving me crazy

Yes another 8GB is a waste for your use. That slowness is your ISP. Read this, run speedtest, and optimize your router.
