Windows 7: Memory - Do we need more than 6 gig?

27 Aug 2010   #41


I might can't encode a video in under 30 minutes, but for everything else, including gaming which I do at least 1 hour a day my computer runs fine. I have a decent dual core; fastest AMD in my chipset I think. As you can see in my specs it isn't the greatest but it fires up in under 2 minutes and everything is ready to go.

It has to be able to run externally, as a stand alone application.

Then you need a virtual MIDI cable to connect the two. (Sequencer to Standalone).

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit (Build 7600)

I have 1.87GB's of RAM, and I use my cpu's on all most everyday/all day (Doesn't mean I'm using it ;])
I rarely come across page faults, lagging, etc - I would happily upgrade to more RAM, but it really doesn't bother me having this little.
