Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Ahhhhh....

That aforementioned anticipated package was actually in my mailbox. Updating one's old desktop memory from 250 meg to 2 gig of Muskin makes you actually like your machine again. Total time spent in the upgrade: 100 seconds. That was a few bucks well-spent. :)

RAM is good.

it's very good, as long as it's completely compatible. I've been working all week of a frazzlin' Dell laptop that hates all major memory brands. I think this guy is going to be SOL unless he wants me to order it direct. Trying to upgrade from 512mb in 2 SODIMMS to 2-512 mb SODIMMs.

Some things are just not worth it.

Regards,
Rabbit.

More RAM is better; but Cell Processing is even better than RAM :-) However, it does cost a little more...

Rabbit-- I had cheated: before I ordered my memory, I popped the cover of my machine off, took a digi photo of the motherboard, then did a search for the board's model number. When I found the online specs for the board, I picked memory that it specifically said it used, and then just bought the best brand of that type that I readily found availible. Yeah, I think I could have gotten very slightly faster memory, but not for less money, less effort, and in as good a brand quality. And why gild the lily? 8X more memory is nothing to be sneezed at. :)

If you are running a Windoze machine and want to speed it up a little more, now that you have 2GB of RAM you can turn the page file off.

That will reduce your disk access considerably and speed the machine up even more.
