Extra RAM

  caradoc 11:07 15 Apr 2004

My computer has 512 Mb RAM at present and I am thinking of increasing this to 1Gb. Would there be any advantage in doeing so?
My system - AMD 2400XP, MSI KT4V Mobo, MSI FX5600 256Mb Graphics card. I use the computer mainly for Flight Simming but have recently installed an MSI DVD re-writer with a view to "creating" my own DVD's!!

Forgeot to mention OS is Win XP Pro.

It will not provide much benifit for most tasks. It may speed things up for video editing, but you may be better off with a faster CPU.

The memory price increased almost 50% over last 3 months, this is why I said too late.

Thanks for your response. I noticed that RAM prices had gone up, one reason why I asked for advice. Not to worry, I'll spend the cash on something else!
