I have heard so many people say different things about memory upgrades on computers so i was wondering if a techie might be able to set the record straight. My computer has 64 megs of RAM. There is a great deal on 256 megs at my local best buy. Now.. would getting this speed up how quickly programs run on the computer (which some have told me yes and some no), or simply allow more programs to be run at once? (which some also say is all that will increase). Some also say the memory boost will speed up internet browsing. can someone tell me the scoop? Don't know all that much about computers so i would really appreciate it. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
