  1. 4gb is the worst place to be at with memory, since you can't use it all with 32bit, but if you switch to 64bit you'll likely be no further ahead due to less efficient use.

    Shoulda' red before u bot.
     
  2. I've got 4 GB too and XP pro 32 bit, I can't use all of my 4 gig but I can use enough + it runs in dual channel.
     
  3. I has only 1gb of RAM <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    I would upgrade but I'm pretty sure I have to do that dimm matching shit and can't be bothered. I'd be extremely happy to just have 2gb
     
  4. dimm matching? what?

    do you know if your memory is DDR-1 or DDR-2?
     
  5. If that's true, I doubt it'll last long. The first ten machines on the Top500 list combine to about 1.1 PB (vs. the 16 EB that 64-bit can address). Ten machines. Obviously they'll have the largest single shares of the whole, but considering thousands of supercomputers out there, and hundreds of millions of ram-containing devices, I can't picture them as more than just a drop in the bucket.
     
  6. Is DDR2 667mhz in a Macbook. Operates in duel-channel mode when matched exactly, so to upgrade you need to throw away all the existing memory to maintain the same speed which makes me <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>

    I'll probably do it next year sometime.
     
  7. The value of your currency literally made me LOL. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/tongue.gif"></A>
     
  8. Today's the day. My entire PC is obsolete. Core2 turned into Core i7. 2GB of 667 doesn't cut it when i7 chips use ram in slots of three. Newest motherboards have 6 slots so that's 12GB of ram until 4GB sticks become mainstream.

    To upgrade, I'm waiting for windows 7.

    $20 ?!?!?!??!?!

    I figured it'd be like closer to a hundred. I guess I have no clue what ram costs <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A> <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/amazed.gif"></A>

  14. I'm guessing 32 bit? 3.25 gb of it will be usable, and the extra 1.25gb is worth another $20 imo
     
  15. Maximum amount of memory a 32-bit system can run is 2^32 bits, whilst a 64 bit system can run 2^64. There's a small difference between the two.
