Default Re: should i try for more ram

I'd say 2GB is fine, 3 might be pushing it so I wouldn't try anything more than that. I have 1.5GB and that seems to be more than plenty.

Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.

Over 2 gigs and your computer will actually slow down as it will have to go thru more ram in order to find what it needs

Default Re: should i try for more ram

well that would depends a lot on the use of the server
I think the server mobos usually have room for like at least 8gb. (and I'd guess the best ones support like 32gb)
But those are more or less just guesses.
