    Going Over RAM Limit

    For awhile, I was under the impression that my PC had a limit of 2gb of RAM. I've been having problems with it over the past year. I could have sworn when I checked its specs online, it said "2gb", but I now see it says "1 gb" on HP's site. I have two slots of RAM, one with 512mb and the...

    In a RAM Jam

    Okay so lately my computer--which is pretty dated--has been giving me grief in a lot of new 3D RTS games. Because of this it's gotten me into thinking of upgrading the RAM. I have 512 RDRAM, in two 256mb chips. Now here's the dilemma... I see a lot of SDRAM out there and, in theory, it looks...
