I was wondering if the CPU was limiting the RAM somehow. I realized straight away that a spare high quality graphics card was limited by the cpu, so there was no point. However, I also realized that after installing the RAM chips, on most applications, the computer was only using 733mb of ram.
The reason I would like to know this is because I'm doing this as a favor for the family. Should I get rid of the extra RAM so that they don't need to waste their money on it, or is it a good idea to keep it?
PS: I realize this comp is not good. I, myself, have a nice rig.
Leave two Gigs and return the other two if possible.
Next step would be to recommend getting a new PC lols
