I bought a 512 ram stick and put it in and now i have 768 ram instead of 256, my question is:
Is there anything else i should do now that i have more ram?
what i mean by this is there any settings that i should change now that my computer can handle more stuff? Sorry if this is confusing. I have XP jsut in case anyone needs to know.

Well, more ram just helps with overall system performance. By default everything that is memory eating should already be enabled :thumbsup:

I read that after u upgrade ur ram it doesnt adjust your page file size. Also are page file size and Virtual Memory the same? I used to have 256 ram and now i have 768 and my Virtual Memory is set at 1148mb. What should i change this to?

change your virtual memory to about 1/4 of the actual ram that u have, if youre having a hard time running applications then lower it or raise it. mess with it until you are satisfied with how your computer runs.
