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.

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.

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.
