It is the cheapest and most effective upgrade for most people.

It's a pity computer makers always sell computers with a bare minimum amount of ram, especially when its so cheap and affects performance so much.

Unfortunately, it is not going to stop until people stop only looking at the MHz rating.

Recently its become even worse with the Pentium 4, because it was intentionally made by Intel to exploit the belief that MHz=speed.

Yea it does make a big difference esp if you at least double the ammount of ram you have.

Did you go to Dick Smiths too...lol...I did the deed this weekend too...well at least I bought the ram and had a young computer whizz ( friend of a friend ) install it for me....a couple of minutes work but I am just stoked at my computers improved performance..now if only I could speed up my xtra connection I really would be over the moon....
