How Much Ram Do I Need?

by on September 17, 2007

Q: I have a 40 GB hard drive in my computer and am wondering how much RAM I should have.

A: The amount of RAM in your system and your hard drive are not directly related. It is always best to put as much RAM into your system as you can afford to do. You should investigate the maximum amount of RAM that your system can accommodate, and try to put as much RAM into your system as you can. The amount of RAM you have is not going to make an enormous difference in performance as far as hard drive access times is concerned.
