Windows 7: How much will and extra 1 gig Ram improve performance?

15 Sep 2009   #31

Windows 7

WOW - the community here is amazing! Cheers to everyone involved.

In that spirit could we also suggest ReadyBoost? An upgrade Element7 may already have in his pocket. I have just started reading about it but it sounds like drive read and write performance can be greatly increased. Can anyone elaborate or speak from experience?

Since you are in South Africa, you are probably able to get a Debit/Check Card through your local bank. They're very common and are accepted at PayPal and other sites too. That's all I use as a matter of fact.

It is a bummer that the older DDR RAM is more expensive than DDR2, but RAM is priced like a commodity item. The less there is available, the more expensive it becomes.

It would be best, as the others have stated, to install two identical sticks of RAM such as 2 - 1 GB sticks. Especially since you have Dual Channel on the mobo. Adding more RAM always improves performance, up to a certain point. It's the cheapest, most effective upgrade you can do to your system.

I hope it all works out for you!
