What kind of RAM do I need to upgrade my computer? 

by on December 3, 2010

Q: OK as it’s christmas i am being bought a RAM memory card, my computer has a total of 3 ram chip slots, i currently am running on a 1GB PNY DDR2 RAM card ( … ) i have heard that you need to have the same type of RAM card to work well with the original one, what i need to know is which would be the best option for me:

buy additional PNY 1GB DDR2 ram cards and plug them in to work with my original 1GB card.

buy a set of 2 chips (in the same packet) of 2gb+ ram and get rid of my original 1GB card.

buy additional (other company) ram cards and plug them in to work with my PNY DDR2 1GB card.

if there is a better choice for me, PLEASE tell me 🙂
btw i’m not amazing at computers but i have home built my pc
BTW it’s a desktop Windows 7 PC with a XFX motherboard, GeForce 8300 Graphics card (i think)
please mail me if you need to know anything else

THANKS!!! 🙂

Is it worth adding more RAM memory to my old Dell Dimension 2400 computer? 

by on May 27, 2010

Q: Is it worth adding more RAM memory to my old Dell Dimension 2400 computer (Celeron dual core 2.40 GHz)?

I gave my kids my old computer. Now that they are older and wanting to watch a lot of youtube videos and play the facebook games the performance difference with the pentium processors and this celeron is very noticeable. Most people say to just add more RAM. Is this true if that is the only things my kids will be using the computer for?
