If you satisfied with it, I'm cool with it, if you have any more issues stop on by again.
Also this discussion isn't a war, just 2 different people coming in on different skills and levels who don't think like the other.

Default Re: memory?

If you use a flash drive with ReadyBoost please remember, while faster than an older hard drive, and slower than real RAM, it will fail due to all the reads and writes that are done to the drive. ReadyBoost was a good concept, but not a great thing.
