The standards given are what would run an optimum system with normal use.
Cut out what you don't need, do proper page file creating, and run as few applications as possible and you will have more than enough memory.
For those who claim that application K/Y/orQ needs extra memory, that is also because the system is built poorly.
Multiple instances of the same libraries doesn't help.
My Computer is a few years old. The specs are
AMD Athlon 64 X2(B) 4800 + 2.5 GHz processor
gForce 6150SE nForce 430 Chipset
Nettle-G18E MCP61PM-HM motherboard
320GB SATA 3G Hard Drive
2GB of ram 1.87 of usable ram
I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit which yeah is probably an over kill But a friend bought it for me. The question I have is I need atleast 2GB of usable ram to for the OS to work properly. And as you can tell I don't have this. So I'm wanting to upgrade. The OS I have can have up to 192Gb of ram and I know I don't need that much but I would atleast like to have 4 to 8 if possible. My PC currently has Pc2-4200 240pin DDR2 SDRAM. So I trying to see if anyone can give there opinion on what the best option would be for me to take to get the best performance out of my Computer and the new operating system!!! I would kindly take any advive!!
