Memory Upgrading

(Part I)

Today's software applications make greater demands on your system's memory. Take full advantage of your software's productivity enhancements by upgrading your memory and optimizing the efficiency of your PC, laptop or Mac with a memory upgrade. Let's take a look at why you may need a memory upgrade, and how you can maximize your PC.

Potential Reasons for Needing More Memory

You Just Upgraded Your Operating System: One common reason for requiring additional computer RAM memory is operating system upgrades. For example, if you just upgraded your operating system you will find that Windows 7TM or VistaTM requires more RAM than XPTM did. As operating systems become more sophisticated they need more memory to do their job. This will take away from the amount of computer RAM memory that is available to your other computer applications. Whenever you upgrade your operating system, it's a good time to assess your computer's RAM memory needs.

You Upgraded Your Business Software: Upgrades of common business software are another factor that can create a need for more RAM memory. Just as with operating systems, business software gets more complex with each new version/update, and invariably it seems like the computer RAM memory needs an increase. If you're installing new software on your PC, closely look at its memory requirements, and see if you need to upgrade.

You're Getting Your Game On: From the casual gamer needing a simple upgrade or storage solution, to the advanced gamer desiring all the dynamic visual effects of the latest DirectX® 10 and DirectX 11 games. With today's advanced visualizations on many popular PC games you may need to increase the RAM memory on your PC in order to maximize your gaming experience. As the gaming world evolves the more advanced games will put an increased memory demand on your system.

Finding the Right Memory for Your Computer: It's a common misconception that you can never have too much computer RAM memory. However, the truth is that you don't really need any more RAM than what you use for your everyday daily computing tasks. Instead, you should carefully assess your computer system to determine if it could benefit from a computer RAM upgrade. To assist with this you can utilize our Memory Configurator to find the best solution for your computer.
