so what you're saying is since I have a 2 Ghz, I should go with 1GB of RAM?


Maybe sometime down the road because I can, I'll max out the board just for the sake of not having to worry about it again.

Ya I know...That'* why my hard drive never shuts up really. Especially when I'm movin between browsers and stuff.

How much ram should I run? I got a 2GB board, should I go all out, or should I just go to 512MB??
One of those would be sufficient. I can only go up to 512 without getting Dell Branded memory (bastiges!!), but if you have the money, get to. A gig of memory would be more than you need, so you're machine would run smoother and cooler...

Would RAM help speed up my other computer at all? I would like to make it faster. I'm not sure how much I have on it now.

When you're talking RAM, is it true that your machine may run faster with 2 - 512 sticks rather than 1 - 1GB stick? I've heard it'* faster because the system can access both sticks at once instead of only having the bandwidth of one stick. Is this true? If so Nate, you may want to look at 2 - 512s instead of a 1GB stick.
