HI,
I was reading other posts and wondered if a Ram upgrade to 3.0 GB would make any difference with my computer.
This is what I have now from Speccy.
Thanks.
Robert

There are a lot of variables here, what operating system are you running, what processor the PC has, etc.. However, 1.5GB of RAM in today's world of PC's is on the lower end of things. Upgrading to 3GB will surely make some difference, especially if your PC has a older/slower hard drive and is using it for page filing. To give you a simple answer, yes, I would personally do the upgrade and will will see performance increase.
