More ram?
Ok guys, i have a p4, 3.0, 1024 pc3200, ati 9800 pro, and i wondered if another 1024 pc 3200 ram would help me run any faster, or would it be a waste of money. I plan on getting a 256 mb video card soon. Thanks for any help on this.

Re: More ram?
One of the largest misconceptions of computers is that RAM speeds everything up. It will if your computer is running say 64M now-a-days, but that's about it. Once you get to about 512+, it won't make that much of a difference...yet ;)

What process are you trying to speed up? Cause most things I can think of that you may want to be sped up would need a Processor Upgrade if its not good enough at the moment.

just do some O'cing and you will notice a big dif overclock processor and vid card and that will be the biggest dif you will notice . just buy a nice new 3.5ghz capable fan and overclock to 3.4 and that will be crazy man.

Re: More ram?
more memory helps if you do alot of multi-tasking
or expect your programs to boot quickly.

Jeesh Yeh but i would say 1024MB is enough i have 512MB and that runs pretty smooth.

gonna have to agree with the previous posters....

adding more ram might be a waste of $$$.... your processor can only max out at a certain point. It may help speed up the opening of app's or multi-tasking, but it looks like you have enough ram already to do that.
