lol you could get 5g ram and your websurfing would be fast like crazy. And just so you know ram helps your hardrive,but 2 will be more than fine. As for a monitor. Since your rasing your budget, you should get a 21 inch monitor. Even though itll be quite pricy.Actually, theres no way you could fit that in your budget, it being almost $700 and all.http://www.clubmac.com/clubmac/shop/...ail,cwbfroogle

Why in the world would you get 5gb? Windows doesnt even regodnize that much.

he is obviously talking out of his arse because websurfing hardly uses that much ram let alone any task hes going to do therefore making most of that ram a waste and Arrizx is right, windows doesnt recognise that much. if you wanna go fast, get quality over quantity, if not abit of both.

Sure it could be. I mean you could have maybe 100 different FF, IE, or Opera browsers open at once. Im sure it would be better with 5gb ram then 1gb
