Can I upgrade my computers memory (RAM)

Scroll Prev Top Next More

One of the most important areas of your computer is the memory (RAM) and if your PC doesn't have enough (which most older PC's don't) then it can run very slowly
 
Upgrading your memory is a cost effective way of prolonging its life without replacing it

 

I would recommend the following amounts of memory for your PC:-
 
Windows XP
 
1Gb minimum - 2Gb optimum
 
(N.B. The maximum memory supported by Windows XP is 3Gb)
 
Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8 / Windows 10
 
2Gb minimum - 4Gb+ optimum (the more the better!)
 
(N.B. You need a 64-bit version of Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 to fully utilize more than 3Gb)
