I'm the type of guy that probably has at least a dozen programs in my startup all running at the same time every time I start windows. Question.... I keep 1 gig ram standard on my PC for startups and the fact that I use a lot of audio/video/photo editing software. Now.... My next computer I am about to buy I am considering going 2 GIGS of ram. Will all this extra ram help gain resources for all the startup programs I run? Or.... Does windows XP stop dedicating RAM for startup programs at a certain point so no matter how much ram I add it won't really matter? Look forward to your response.
