I just got two 2GB RAM modules for my desktop computer. With the two 1GB modules that are already installed, I will have a total of 6GB in that sucker. Gone will be the days of closing programs. Thank goodness!
Here you can see the inside of my compy while I am installing one of the modules. That hulking metal thing is the heat sync for the Intel Core 2 Quad processor.
Here I see that of the 4GB that Windows detects, it is only actually using 3,069MB, basically 3GB. Again, I was expecting this, and will be taking advantage of the 64-bit disk that came along with the 32-bit disk in the retail box ‘o Windows Vista Ultimate.
In a later post I may discuss why so much RAM is actually useful.
