Need more Ram?


Recommended Posts

Can you show us the processes tab so we can see what is using all that ram?


When I load one of my larger files in chief it only uses 2-3 gb.  


It looks like you still have 2gb of headroom, if that gets used though windows will write memory to your hard drive and that will be SLOW.  But if that isn't happening, adding more ram won't make your system faster.


Have you upgraded a pc before?  You will need to know if your system can physically handle more ram modules.  If not, you will have to replace your existing modules with higher capacity ones.  


I would say 12mb to 16mb would be a decent amount to have, you shouldn't run out, but again, adding ram doesn't mean everything gets faster.
