Default Re: Upgrading RAM?

RAM is limited by a few things. First, the motherboard and how much it can support. Second the operating system and how much it can support.

Also, a gaming computer won't require more than 4-8 GB of RAM anyway.

Some of the new HP desktop, Envy I think their called, have options for LARGE amounts of ram. I'm taking a gander at some of them myself. Normally I'd build my own but I'm stuck in redneck hell and there's no tech stores to buy things from.
