Upgrading your computer’s RAM



            When it comes to upgrading your desktop computer, one of the first things you should do is upgrade your RAM; this is a simple and cost-effective way to boost the performance and speed of your aging computer. With the steadily-increasing rate of technology we currently see, a RAM upgrade is an intelligent option to keep your PC ready to run any program you throw at it. Aside from noticing the slow speeds of your computer, you can check your computer’s RAM usage by simply using Windows Task Manager. While Windows specifically requires a generally low amount of RAM, those seeking higher speeds should strive for a more considerable amount and purchase RAM from a reputable source.
The speeds the RAM operates at must be matched to your motherboard’s speed to ensure proper operation. Make sure you pay attention to how much RAM your PC can hold though as many older models only support a certain number of GBs. The actual process of installing new RAM into your desktop is painless and can be done without any tools. While ensuring no static electricity effects your computer and the RAM module, unplug your PC and open the case. Then, locate the RAM sticks and open the latches that hold the RAM in place. Next, insert the new RAM sticks according to your motherboard’s specifications and snap it back into place.
After this is done, you have just successfully upgraded the RAM in your computer and now are ready for anything. I hope this information helps you as it helped me; after upgrading my RAM to 12GB, it was a night and day difference. Good luck and have fun!
