Hi Im using a aspire m5200 tower with vista home premium os fully up to date . Chipset ati rs780+sb700, amd phenom 9550 quad core processor , with 4096mb memory installed . I have 3 hard drives making 1.2 terrabyte . Nvidia geforce 8600gt total available graphics memory 1662mb. Realtek hi def audio . Marvell yukon 88e8071 gigabit ethernet controller bios version ro1-b1 relaese date 5/7/2008. Varios software installed . I run a epson printer scanner combo . And a virgin media wifi hub although i am hardwired to it . I have 30g broadband from virgin . My question is . What would i gain if anything or see improvement by installing the other 4 gig of memory that this motherboard allows or would the cost approx £50 quid not justify doing it . Thanks in advance . Dave goodliffe .

Do you have 32 bit vista or 64 bit?

Vista 32bit can only see 3.5gb ram so purchasing any more would be a waste of money

Vista 64bit home premium if im correct can see up to 16gb

Another fine example of a helpful thread title. I am researching Daves in history, what do I find?
