£600 for Gigabyte of RAM?

  Forum Editor 19:37 19 Oct 2004

That's an outrageous price - you can find DDR PC2700 RAM for around £120 for a Gigabyte pretty well anywhere.

I also find your friend's claim that the memory increase has boosted performance by 60% a tad difficult to swallow - unless he started with a very small amount. I wonder what method he used to measure the speed increase?

All that aside - increasing RAM is still the single best upgrade you can make - assuming that all other components are reasonably specified - and that's particularly true if you work with big graphics files, or play games a lot.
