Adding more RAM - the advantages ? in reality plz?

  GEEKSTA 13:58 24 Nov 2007

I want to add more ram to my laptop toshiba a60, its currently on 448mb of RAM (shouldnt it be 512Mb?) anyway i want to consider buying a 1 Gig chip RAM beacause my pc is so slow with programs, (can only handle like 3 internet explorers at one time without jamming)
i want to know what will be the advantages of upgrading to 1 gb,
can u possily tell me in reality terms, and not what it sould do theoretically.

test how much ram your using by replicating tasks and checking in taskmanager performance,identify if its ram or processor thats struggling to cope or possibly other issues causing the slowdown.

the missing ram could be 64mb onboard graphics.
I personally didnt notice a jot of difference going from 512mb to 1gb but i wasnt fully using the 512mb.
