Windows 7: Memory stick upgrade: How to select

24 Feb 2013   #11


Oh, I'm not finding much information on this memory based on the part number. You're right though that memory will always be at the speed of the slowest module(s).

Do these modules have stickers on them? If so, then at this point your best bet may be to check the specifications printed on those stickers and then try to find memory that matches those specifications - at least as close as possible.

Are you sure you really need that much memory? What application are you using for this historical data, and have you been monitoring your system to see if your current memory capacity isn't enough?

Hello DeaconFrost

I'm actually using up to 85% of my actual memory. I' m using my PC for trading and I kept open many charts with a lot of data and calculation on it.

I just order a 16GB memory kit for 125$. For that price, I don't risk too much to maybe get a stable PC. At the moment, sometime I need to close charts to be able to execute a screen capture.

If you're using 85% of your 8GB, then all you needed was an other 4-8 GB.
