Upgrading a desktop computer’s RAM memory is the easiest and least expensive way to improve performance and breathe new life and enhanced usability into a not so new computer.
My primary computer is an MTech 5600D laptop with a 2.8ghz Pentium 4 processor, 1 gigabyte of system RAM memory, and an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 video card with 128mb of dedicated graphics memory.
My backup computer that I use for DVD burning and storing all my travel pictures is a P4 1.5ghz with only 256mb of ram. During use it was always accessing the hard disk drive to use the swap file, which really slowed down every action and software program.
I ordered 2 512mb sticks of RAM to upgrade my desktop PC from 256mb to 1024mb of system memory.
